  1. My photos from this past weekend's Epic Trek are HERE if anyone is interested. Great time of hiking, learning, and fellowship.
  2. That means a 70% chance of no rain! Rain or shine, it will be an awesome day. Can't wait for Saturday!!!
  3. A couple of thoughts, neither of which may be applicable for 2018: 1. Something Vicksburg-related, since Dr. Tim is working on Vicksburg-related books. 2. A "(fill in state name) at Shiloh" series, visiting some of the more notable actions of regiments from several of the states represented at Shiloh. My thought that this could be an ongoing series, with each year's hike covering regiments from a particular state.
  4. Tim, those maps are outstanding and very helpful to get a better handle on exactly where we were Saturday. Thanks so much for making them available to the rest of us Trekkers!
  5. There is also a Hampton Inn at Pickwick State Park, which is about 12 miles from Shiloh.
  6. Two, three, or possibly four, coming from The Alabama Brigade. Can't wait!
  7. Pretty close, Perry. I think I like your shot better than mine.
  8. Ozzy, the photo you are referring to is the 14th Missouri camp tablet. It is located just off Hwy 22, directly across from the main entrance to the park. Interestingly, the Shiloh Monument Locator website apparently has no record of the 14th Missouri camp marker - at least I could not find it. The only Missouri Infantry units shown are the 13th, 18th, 21st, 23rd, 25th, and 28th (Federal > Missouri > Infantry > Unit).
  9. Thanks, Ozzy, for your kind words. I could not find a marker for the 14th WI camp but the April 7th tablets for that unit indicate that they were engaged in the area of the Eastern Corinth Road. If you've not used it, THIS is an excellent resource for identifying tablets, monuments, etc, and include exact GPS coordinates.
  10. Mona, I have a Nikon D300 and used both a Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VR2 and a Tamron 28-75 f2.8 zoom lenses. I have other lenses but these are the two I used for these photos.
  11. I made a day trip to Shiloh this past Saturday to do a little photography. Photos are HERE if anyone is interested. ~Ed
  12. I grew up reading the American Heritage / Catton book from my dad's extensive collection. The text, photos, and illustrations were my primary point of reference in those early years (1960s).
  13. Wow! Thanks for the update, Mona. I will give it another try.
