It wasn't just the generals. Sergeant William Finacey died 7\3\1863 repulsing Pickett's charge. His great grandson, Leonard Francis Harsch, Electricians Mate on the USS Vincennes, died 8\10\1943 when the ship went down in the Battle of Savo Island. William was 27 years old, his great grandson was 20. The only reason this country exists is because of men like them.I'm finding these deaths of sons and a great grandson to be very ironic. Sadly ironic. I have to confess that I was unaware of these relationships.
