As the old year comes to an end it's always a time for reflection, and so the final Throwback Thursday for 2018 only goes back as far as this April during my whirlwind tour of Civil War battlefields with my old friend Doug @1863surgeon and his son Bradley. Above, Bradley photographed me at Gettysburg's Oak Hill standing beside one of the British-manufactured Whitworth rifled guns which boasted a range of four miles and fired on Union positions from here.

Anyone else having (preferably) old Civil War-related photos, mementoes, or memorabilia you would like to share is welcome and heartily encouraged to do so in this thread!
