    Enjoyed your program on William Child and the Smoketown Hospital last night in Columbus. I was not aware of the topic, but found it fascinating.Thank you for being so thorough. Hope to get you to Zanesville RT some time soon. Don Moody, coordinator Zanesville CWRT

    Hi Dan,

    I’m not sure if you remember me Mark Smith but sat next to you a few Novembers ago signing our books at the Gettysburg NPS Bookstore. I co-authored the books “To prepare for Sherman’s coming” and “No Such Army”. I have been reading about the Spangler Farm and the latest book out “Too much for Human Endurance.” Love it and the story of the hospital. The XI Corps is near and dear to my heart as the later become part of the XX Corps on Sherman’s March and fought at Averasboro and Bentonville.

    My question – Will you be work at Gettysburg over Labor Day weekend 2020 (COVID permitting)? I ask as we have a large group of families (mostly Military and several RNs) and we camp every year at the camp ground by Blackhorse Tavern. We take day to do a little tour of the battlefield. We have never done a hospital! Would love to get a tour with you. Please let me know what we need to do and any cost associated with it.

    Right now we are in the planning stages. Let me know if you are interested or know another ranger. Please email me at smithm1@juno.com.
