Aquia Landing and the Gettysburg Campaign
Posted on: 4/9/2017 12:51:05 PM
I knew about Aquia Landing's importance during the earlier campaigns, but I recently can upon it in conjunction with Gettysburg.
A summary of assorted markers and waysides indicates that it was still in use up until the Union pursuit north began; it was abandoned by the Union, then burned by Confederate forces; the railroad tracks were also torn up.
That's all I can find online, and there doesn't seem to be much else in print.
Are there any good sources out there specifically about Aquia Landing during the war?
Cry "Havoc"...and let slip the dogs of war.
