  1. A little late to the party, but that's ok. Came across the story of Samuel Everett and was glad to see it had already been previously discussed. Very interesting, indeed. -Paul
  2. Very happy to hear you all had a wonderful trip!
  3. We took a day trip over to Shiloh on Saturday to enjoy the beautiful weather and walk around for the day, also because it's pretty much been forever since we've stopped by the park. As is customary on every visit, we have our dog, Beauregard, pose for a picture next to his namesake road over by Fraley Field. Not sure why they replaced the old Beauregard sign, even the Visitors Center couldn't really give us an explanation as to why it happened, which is fine, it was simply curiosity if anything.
  4. Should be ideal conditions for tomorrow. Everybody have fun and be safe!
  5. Aaron Rodgers must have been leading them all, naturally. -Paul
  6. Find a Grave lists his burial & plot as Unknown at the bottom, due to the burial at sea reference in the earlier text, I would assume.
  7. Been about 4 years since I've been to an anniversary hike, and almost 3 since I've been to the Park itself. Is it wrong that I'm perfectly content with waiting for Tony's video uploads at this point? Of course, it is always very gracious & kind of him to perform such a service for many of us each year, and am always truly appreciative of his generosity. -Paul
  8. Welcome, Derrick! Glad to have you with us. -Paul
  9. Looks like a fun time was had by all, indeed. So glad it was a perfect fall day for the hike! -Paul
  10. Mona, Here is what I was able to find on Eluctious William Treadwell, Sr. Wasn't able to find a burial location, sadly. -Paul
  11. I've never seen him so tired, than after he spent most of the day out and about at the battlefield, he was definitely tuckered out, spoiled puppy.
  12. Not this year, sadly. Definitely need to get back out there, haven't been to the Park since the Mississippi Monument dedication ceremony, and that was almost 2 years ago.
  13. My friend did the work by finding it in the first place and notifying the Park Service. I'm merely the messenger
  14. 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: C. S. ARMY OF THE MISSISSIPPI. Chalmers' (2d) Brigade, 9th MISS., 7th MISS., 5th MISS., 10th MISS., Withers' (2d) Division, Bragg's Corps. 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! -Paul
