Amazing, to see a picture of this man... a true patriot, who stood and fought (while much of his regiment drifted away to safety, beneath the bluff at Pittsburg Landing.) The other interesting Fact associated with LtCol Kyle: Newspaper reporter, Whitelaw Reid, stayed with him for a spell, in March 1862, while waiting for the march on Corinth to commence... (interrupted by the Battle of Shiloh.)
