  18. 2017 Epic Trek Topic Announcement

    mike...im not sure of the cost this year but Perry usually has everybody pay in advance --so we have a headcount look back at previous years hilke info and it should be there and then just send him a message and he'll explain..looking forward to meeting you..and we'll have lunch somewhere along the way..i have lunch onboard for everybody.
  19. Name that Road

    yes this part of the road is flat then one will go down a good hill to the bottom..which alot of the time one would need boots to slosh through to get to the bridge site.because you are walking through the bottom
  20. Whitelaw Reid

    i'll take a chance..was hard to read --no blame but on me i cant figure how to get the green color off--but 2-false he was at crump's 1-false -because he returns with others about a week later 3-true along with prentiss 4-false he writes it was after 10am 5-true..he galantly describes websters actions on the 6th 6-i have no idea couldnt read that part
  21. "On the Cover of the Rolling Stone..."

    ive never seen this note before. on page 74 of duke's hx of morgans calvary..he writes that due to his services of recently he(morgan) was given commission of colonel to take effect 4-4-62 .and recieves assurance-or what he constured to be that he was permitted to continue to act independenty and follow his favorite service with stronger force and larger scale. so maybe...with all that was to come over the next few days nobody really knew of his new rank..wonder if the news just took more days to reach lee.
  22. "On the Cover of the Rolling Stone..."

    there are some Hariisons that have owned property for a long time ...the roads are around here named after long time land owners
  23. "On the Cover of the Rolling Stone..."

    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.
  24. I wanted all to know that the sign has placed in the right spot.I didt want to say anything earlieras it was about a quarter mile on too far toward Pebble Hill. (These signs need to have land owners approval--but where it is placed i can tell you much action took place if you beleive artifacts-)I've got a picture and hope that Perry can receive it and put it here..We had a discussion on site about the battle and locations of the 2 roads and hospital site were pointed out.Mona
