"Only" three of his children died in Richmond during the war. Others survived to adulthood - and two of them are in Arlington.I had to remark concerning the Arlington Cemetery, that I was led to believe Longstreet lost his children in 1863. Can someone please clarify??
I was all over the battlefield on Tuesday, not only on the fishhook. I'm getting mixed up with the farms too all the time. Before writing the report, I had to look them up on the map to not sound like a dunce.I had fooled myself into believing the second day was spent with the Union in the fishhook, and continue to get mixed up when farmsteads are mentioned, such as Trostle's.
Thursday in Alexandria is coming. My schedule just got blown apart by a delayed flight out of Washington thanks to the thunderstorm and missed and delayed trains home. I was already about to start writing the report, but then got distracted with phone calls with family and Ami's SOA in front of my thread. It just takes a while longer. Should be up today.So is Friday to come or have I misunderstood the verbal tense?
Too late by the time you posted this but I saw the thread when it was bumped. And I had time to spare...it's probably too late to mention or suggest this, but in Alexandria you should forget Lee's House (not open to the public anyway) and go instead to Ft.
