    Here’s a heads up for those that might be interested. NPS Ranger Troy Harman will be giving a lecture on Captain Samuel Johnston’s early morning July 2, 1863 reconnaissance. If you are nearby it will be at the Gettysburg NMP Visitor Center at 1:30 PM EST tomorrow, January 13. The doors open at 1 PM. It’s likely that all seats will be taken by the time the lecture starts.

    For those not nearby, the Park will be livestreaming the lecture on their Facebook page.

    I have been on two of Troy’s battle walks on this subject and they were fabulous. When Captain Johnston returned from his reconnaissance, General Lee asked him, “Did you get there?” Come and find out Troy’s opinion on whether Captain Johnson “got there.”

    Certainly one of Gettysburg's many great mysteries. With this weather, I am grateful for live streaming. I wonder if he will bring up Henry Wentz? Thanks for posting this.

    I'll be working until this afternoon but I'd be curious what conclusions Troy Harman has about Capt. Johnston.
