I'm new to this RSS crap, please contact me in anyway, shape or form that you can. Paper letters work very well with me. My Great, Great, GPa, was with the 84th Indiana Volunteer Infantry Regiment and was present as Granger's Reserves came to re-enforce George "Rock" Thomas hold-outs at Snodgrass Hill to cover for "Rosie's" quick dispatch.
They covered for the retreat of Federal forces when the sun set.
It could have been worse for the Federals. It is certainly history now, however, I would like to hear from you, at your convenience.
