Hey Larry,

Lots to digest in all the ink you show here! Both Vicksburg, & Gettysburg are discussed. You point out the successful tactics of Grant in successfully capturing the Vicksburg stronghold.

The next main article on prisoners at Gettysburg, brings to mind how could Lee bring Union captives with him while trying to escape back to Virginia, it seems that it would make the venture that much more difficult? What say yall??


July 4th, a good day for the UNION!
