Hi Larry,

Again your articles reflect the life & times around July 1863, around Gettysburg, PA. This main article relays some of the massive casualties! BTW have you ever come across an article that lists the names of the respective fatalities? Like in Gone with the Wind, where citizens read from the news the locals & loved ones who perished?? If so that would be intriguing to see!?

Also noted the execution of a spy, not a fun position to be in? I see that again we read of Vallandigham, defender of the South, what does it say for Ohio, that he became an elected official there??


Enjoying your articles,
MD
