Shot in the ankle which required amputation, but "his constitution could not survive the shock."

It is sad that so many young men like this had to die. And sadder still that, 162 years later, he couldn`t be dead enough for some people.

Respects, Morris

That`s not a political statement Greg....it`s the culture of today. If that upsets you...too bad!

There is an entire thread on the warning from guides of a threat to Gettysburg monuments a threat to tear down confederate monuments in a battlefield park!

It doesn't upset me, it pisses me off that you can't keep your agenda out of anything you post.

BTW i'm well aware of what goes on at Gettysburg.
