    Am I the only one who has noticed that the brigade commanders of the Twelfth Corps' 2nd division at Gettysburg had a unique combination of names? If you don't get it, then look at the picture below.:tongue:
    George Greene
    Charles Candy
    Thomas Kane

    I have told at least one person that Culp's Hill had a Candy Kane on it. :wink:

    you definitely belong on this forum. This is the type of thing which keeps most of our members up at night. I don't know if that's good or bad but I still enjoyed thank you.

    Sometimes the LBG's will mention it on their tours.
