  1. My friend did the work by finding it in the first place and notifying the Park Service. I'm merely the messenger
  2. Not long ago, a friend of mine saw on Craiglists that a Battlefield Position Marker from Shiloh was up for sale. This struck him as odd, and sent me the listing over Facebook to see for myself. The marker itself is #402, Day 2 action, Jones Withers' Division, Chalmer's 2nd Brigade that states: C. S. ARMY OF THE MISSISSIPPI. Chalmers' (2d) Brigade, 9th MISS., 7th MISS., 5th MISS., 10th MISS., Withers' (2d) Division, Bragg's Corps. This brigade was engaged here on Monday, April 7, 1862, until about 1 p.m. My friend then contacted Shiloh National Military Park and informed them of what he had seen, and for the park to hopefully have it returned. I am very pleased to announce, it is indeed done. The Park Service responded saying the Marker was back in their possession, and that it had been taken from the Battlefield over 40 years ago. It looks a bit worn due to age, so I'm sure that it'll be spruced up a bit and retake it's rightful place on the Battlefield. So good news all around! -Paul
  3. The topics of the many hikes look like it will be a fun time this year. I was looking forward to it, until I remembered our 10 year Anniversary is in mid April and talked about taking a week off to go somewhere. I, myself, would prefer to take that week and just spend it at Shiloh during the anniversary week; however, I doubt that would fly over well with the Mrs., ugh...priorities truly suck, don't they? -Paul
  4. I'll go with 515 feet. Can we go to National Coney Island or a Big Boy, instead? Between those, and Slurpees from 7-11, definitely miss them all. -Paul
  5. I started Tim's recent book not too long ago, the one thing I wish were different (as it was with the Shiloh book) is less of the Tarantino-ing with certain topics...meaning...something will be introduced, and then several pages spent going back to the beginning, explaining how that topic or person came to be. A lot of the times it's only something small & indifferent to the big picture, it just simply can be annoying at times. Then again, this is just my opinion. -Paul
  6. The only thing I can think of, which might be incorrect, is Jackson MS. Only because of Brig. General Charles Clark (Clark's Division of Polk's Corps at Shiloh, later A.P Stewart's) was sworn in as Governor in late 1863, preceded by John J. Pettus. -Paul
  7. Just was curious, something I've been wondering, did Tony by chance, take his usual video for this hike? I just finished Tim's interview with Bjorn and that question popped up in my head. -Paul
