  1. there are some Hariisons that have owned property for a long time ...the roads are around here named after long time land owners
  2. i believe as you write that morgan's squadron was in the rear guard but probably not at fallen timber as i believe duke would have surely mentioned it...the action on the 10th is more liking to the action duke describes.. duke does "embelish" the description of the battle as a victory..the only thing i can come up with is yes the confederate army did stp the federals from approach to corinth ...just a delay.
  3. yes there are many locations where a trail sign could be but they really require a "sponser" and a land owner willing to allow sign placed and provide enuf pulloff space for a vehicle and yearly insurance(which had already paid for itself at Fallen Timbers when it was stolen couple yrs back a new one was put up in a very timely fashion) .also there are locations that could have one that the land owner either doesnt know the history of the location or doesnt care 9
  4. yes ive seen several sketches of his not included in the book...kind of a shame they all werent in cluded.
  5. In Basil Duke's History of Morgan's Calvary he writes that" Breckinridge was left as rear guard and withdrew to 3 miles to Mickey's and remained there undisturbed for 5-6 days. Our calvary(Morgan) occupied the ground several miles further north. Morgan's Squadron and other calvary commands were posted for more than a week upon a portion of the field won from the enemy on the first day.,during which only 2-3 trifling skirmishes occured. " so Morgan himself ive never found was present at Fallen Timbers. ill have to check another source as to which of his squadron was presnt but it reads like they were in the vicinity..maybe fallen timbers to them not as fierce a battle as they'd experienced the 2 days previously..to call it a squirmish.what do yall think.
  6. Morgan's quick witted wiretapper was George "Lightning " Ellsworth a canadian who had become enamoured of the Confederate cause while he was inTX. i have not read/found that he joined Morgan but later in 1862.so he was not with Morgan's squadron at Shiloh.
  7. yes these sketches are very graphic.i have this book and highy recommend it
  8. i knew that was a typo..you are forgiven
  9. yes one would have to find a role for john wayne..what about matthew mcconaughey as cleburne? imstill struggling for beauregard ,johnston and chalmers(i have an actor in mind but cant think of his name at this time..later) patrick swayze i would have to find a role for him also. do yall remember the john wayne movie.."The Undefeated" it was post was but it was good.
  10. yes..these are priceless! and i know you have more that would love a caption!
  11. this is very interesting article...i tried to like it but a message popped up saying i can only "like" 10 posts per 4 hr hour period...i had not liked 10 yet..has anybody ever come upon that?
  12. These are great!!!
  13. Hamburg Savannah Rd before you drop off into the Owl Creek bottom?
