They have begin restoring and repainting markers . I talked to a ranger two weeks ago who told me about their cleanup efforts on their off days . They are getting there it's just slow .I really love this thread!
But, in looking through it, I think the National park service needs to hire some kids to paint the markers in the summer.
I am trying to locate a picture of the Confederate location marker at Dill branch, right in front of Grant's Last Line. Jackson's brigade made it to this point, at about 5:30, and then Beauregard gave the fateful order to "pull back." I remember ( in April of 2003) walking back through a maze of trails (thanks to a helpful park Ranger.) I never would have found it on my own. Even though it was April I could not tell directions in the woods. I am searching for a photo of the marker. I didn't find one on the internet. If anyone has one please feel free to post.
