    Tom, Thanks. I do have copies of a couple of letters (also from the Hayes Center) written by men of the 72nd regarding the battle of Brice's crossroads. There's quite a bit more regarding the 72 Ohio at the Hayes Center that I haven't seen yet though. JB

    Stan, Would love to see the pictures you mentioned. I saw the photo of Chester Buckland in your gallery. Here is a link to a letter written by his brother Henry notifying their parents of Chester's injury. http://www.rbhayes.org/hayes/manunews/paper_trail_display.asp?nid=59&subj= JB

  12. With the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh just around the corner I would like to share transcripts of some letters home that were written by men of the 72nd Ohio in the days following the Battle of Shiloh. I will also be posting 2 brief accounts of the 72nd's involvement in the battle written years after the battle by a Sgt.and a Captain of the 72nd, and also a brief account of the Battle written by Colonel R.P.Buckland who was in charge of the fourth brigade of the fifth division of the Army of the Tennessee at the battle. I came across these letters while researching my G Grandfather's civil war service at the R.B.Hayes Presidential Center. In Fremont Ohio. Please keep in mind that these are scans of copies and as such the legibility of some of the documents is not the best. I tried to clean them up to be easier to read but, was not very successful. Everything that I am posting here can be found at, and is posted with permission of the R.B.Hayes Presidential Center, Fremont Ohio http://www.rbhayes.org/ JB

  15. Happy Birthday Jon

    Hello, I want to belatedly thank you all for the birthday wishes. My wife is disabled and I am her 24/7 care giver and as such I don`t get on here as much as I would like to. I do enjoy very much reading the posts here as I learn something with almost every thing I read. Thanks again. Jon B.
