More casualties than I thought occurred at Carlisle. From the Press, Philadelphia PA. July 3, 1863

Hi Larry,

The article mentions General John Reynolds, does anyone know in relations to the front lines of the fighting Reynolds was when he was shot?? Shouldn't he have been further back out of a risky harms way?? Comments anyone??

Go Gettysburg!

Some of the casualties are duplicated, mentioned in both lists of the wounded.

Interesting to see, though, that they are are all - or nearly all - victims of artillery fire.

Regards, Phil
