152nd anniversary of Maj. Gen. John Sedgwick’s death
“Uncle John” (1813-1864)
nice photo and thought
“They couldn’t hit an elephant at this distance.”
But they could hit a major general.
Thanks, Chris– your post caused me to review “Uncle John’s” life and career. Makes the Civil War stories come alive for us readers.
Keep them coming!
Thanks! One of my goals, as a writer and interpreter, is to help people make their own connections to these great stories. I’m glad I was able to help you find an opportunity to take some time and reflect!
