    PVT Baker 25th Missouri

    and yall remember the little girl's diary..i cant think of her name..but she writes of small ravine filled with Confederate dead... i do know from tellings of older people way back that are gone now of seeing skeletal remains in some of these places...so some were not even buried just piled up..and you all know that it would be very easy for a wounded soldier to walk a piece before collapsing and dying and body not being found but hogs .later.

    Who was In Charge?

    do you think that Sherman was specifcally chosen d/t Grant knowing that he would not likely take action on the reports of the Confederate Army being nearer.But felt if McClernand was in charge he-McClernand would investigate these"demonstrations" which would lead to bringing on an engagement.?
