    I've got this pretty well figured out, except for the end of the fourth line and the beginning of the fifth line.

    The signatures are hard to decipher too, especially the initials.

    This is pretty cool, by the way, because it establishes that the soldier Lt. Ward was in Kenansville, N.C., during the last week in March 1864. That was just six weeks before he was wounded again, after he had returned to duty for the beginning of the Overland Campaign. He would be wounded in the abdomen May 12 when his unit was overrun by Hancock's Corps at the Mule Shoe at Spotsylvania.

    This is getting a little frustrating.

    This should link you to an e-mail string. The document I'm working on is #52, which appears at the the 10th e-mail in the string.

    Still no good. If all else fails you might try a screen-shot, and post that.

    I'm not sure why this isn't working. If you'd like to e-mail it to me, I could try and post it. PM me if you want to try it.
