One has to wonder where the Gazette got it's early scoop on Lee's movements. From the Pittsburgh Gazette, May 30, 1863.

Hi Larry,

At least for me, the article didn't come through? I couldn't access it?? (just a lil X is visible?)

BTW Is "Rappahannock", an Native American Word??

Cheers,
MD

The name of the river comes from an Algonquian word, lappihanne (also recorded as toppehannock), meaning "river of quick, rising water" or "where the tide ebbs and flows," the name used by the local Rappahannock tribe.


MD. I had to google it.

Thanks Larry,

It's clear as a bell! (John "Bell" Hood, that is!)
