Hey Larry,

Great article, makes you wonder when the Union finally caught on to the fact, that the Reb's always try to flank them!? Also interesting that by paying $300.00 a wealthy person could still get out of the war! Wow this newspaper also had privy that Vicksburg had fallen!?

Rich mans war, poor man's fight!
Happy 4th!
Dave

BTW; Lar, for all you do this Bud's for you!

I liked the part about Richmond being surrounded and on the brink of surrender. Wishful thinking on someones part.

Larry,

So far this series of article have the most interesting info so far, your right the last artical on the capture of Richmond is a trip. The mentioning of hearing the conflict still going strong from some distance away, could be the temendous cannonade on day three. I heard they could hear it as far as Pittsburgh?

Go Gettysburg, wish I was there.
