  1. Epic Trek 2017: Update

    Mike, hold on to that hope. Everyone knows the weatherman is always wrong. This is what the back yard has started looking like.
  2. Epic Trek 2017: Update

    Mike, " I hear that its supposed to be a good year for colors, lets hope so." Weatherman out of Jackson said the other night that due to hot dry weather, the fall colors will probably be late and not as bright.

    Mona, "special lunch needs" Lobster? King crab legs? Beer?
  4. Keep cool and shoot low.

    More than a few errors! The 1st and most notable: 3 brigades in the 6th Division? I once did a car caravan at a Shiloh anniversary where it was claimed the 6th had 3 brigades. I wonder if this is where that came from.
  5. Looking at Ozzy's list on the WI rosters http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/Content.aspx?dsNav=N:4294963828-4294963805&dsRecordDetails=R:CS4267 I find a group from the 19th WI. They are misstated. They were members of various units. Notice there were no officers of the 16th WI.
  6. Shiloh Feature Film

    General William T. Sherman Sean Penn.
  7. Food for thought...

    I have never considered "Federal Special Forces" in the Civil War before. Here is an interesting little site: http://www.military-historians.org/meetings/2013-meeting/JohnDowdle.pdf
  8. Name that Road

    Beauregard Road.
  9. Jackson HQ

    This post reminded me of why studying the Civil War can get so confusing. The Army of Mississippi (CSA) is often referred to as The Army of the Mississippi, which is easy to confuse with the Union's Army of the Mississippi.
  10. Shiloh Visit - April 29, 2017

    The 14th WI was not at Shiloh prior to the battle but came down with Buell for the 2nd day. After the battle they camped off the battlefield (not a pleasant place by then) to the west.
  11. Crump wharf

    Well Doc, then I guess they needed a better gate!

    Darn, I thought it was shaping up to be dueling epics.
  13. Crump wharf

    I always thought there was a wharf at Cherry Mansion, but :
  14. Crump wharf

    I went to Google Images and looked at the picture: It does look like reeds.
  15. Crump wharf

    The drawing seems to show the landing road winding up the bluff on the south side of the cabin. The modern landing is in the cut to the north. There also looks be be a large gate at the building. Further up the road near the tree there seems to be another structure of some type. Are those reeds in the river's edge, or a reflection of the trees? Is that a wash tub and drying rack along the shore to the right of the landing? Great drawing!
