Check this out. Took the second one last May. The lowest hole near the peak is from a cannon ball.

Those who have seen never forget but find it hard to explain.

My Great-Great Grandfather was at Gettysburg with Company B, 15th Alabama and after the war wrote a book called “Some incidents and events of the Civil War”. Last May Linda and I took Grand-pa’s book and by comparing his description of landmarks and being there on the battlefield we were able to follow his path of advance. I honestly don’t know how he survived. His company was on the extreme right flank of Longstreet’s corp. and advanced down the ridge across plum run and up Big Round top. It gives you a feeling I can’t really describe to follow in the steps of your ancestor in such a historic location as Gettysburg.

There seams to be a preponderance of Confederate dead in those photos. Biased media?

And I didn't know Andy Sipowicz was in the Civil War; (Here's your war, right here!)

Ah- Genl Bejamin "Beast" Butler. Beloved by civilians throughout the South. Some of you may not be aware of a bit of furniture known as a Butler Chair. Looks like a large wooden framed chair, but the seat is hinged, and lifts up to reveal a chamber pot. The pots were adorned with a painting of Benj. Butler. On the INSIDE of the pot!

And while I may pull your leg about a lot of things, that one is for real.

For some interesting reading that is a bit different, find a copy of "A House Undivided" by Allen E. Roberts. Stories about Masons in the military- North and South- during the Civil War.
