Not long ago, a friend of mine saw on Craiglists that a Battlefield Position Marker from Shiloh was up for sale. This struck him as odd, and sent me the listing over Facebook to see for myself. The marker itself is #402, Day 2 action, Jones Withers' Division, Chalmer's 2nd Brigade that states:
ARMY OF THE MISSISSIPPI.
Chalmers' (2d) Brigade,
9th MISS., 7th MISS., 5th MISS., 10th MISS.,
Withers' (2d) Division,
This brigade was engaged here on Monday, April 7, 1862,
until about 1 p.m.
My friend then contacted Shiloh National Military Park and informed them of what he had seen, and for the park to hopefully have it returned. I am very pleased to announce, it is indeed done. The Park Service responded saying the Marker was back in their possession, and that it had been taken from the Battlefield over 40 years ago. It looks a bit worn due to age, so I'm sure that it'll be spruced up a bit and retake it's rightful place on the Battlefield. So good news all around!
