    It is said that no trip to the Shiloh National Millitary Park is complete unless you bushwhack the Dill Branch Ravine. I recommend starting on the south edge at Tablet 401 (Gage's Battery), near the Indian Mounds and traversing over to the north side, coming out slightly to the west of the Visitor Center. In any event, walk as much of the battlefield as you can. Maybe park at Rhea Springs, check out the new Mississippi monument, walk to Shiloh Church (recognizing that you are going through what was a morass on April 6), and then, assuming that you have time, continue on to Water Oaks Pond.

    Hank, He was pvt. Patrick J. Farmer of Company H from LaSalle county Illinois. I have a very limited record from National Archives, and very blurry pay record shows captured with Prentiss's surrender, then Corinth, Tuscaloosa, Montgomery, then paroled through Camp Parole Md. Have not found an actual roster of any of those places with his actual name. Know he eventually went back to Cairo, made Cpl., then disappeared for 8 years.
