Not so fast with those walls…..

Well, just when I thought that I had a piece of Farnsworth’s Charge settled in my mind with the finding of the AL walls, along comes some of the best map analyzer’s that I know in Civil War discussion!!

Ed Bell, on MHO (www.militaryhistoryonline.com) did an extensive analysis of the locations of the wall and of the D-Shaped field. To be honest, I’m still trying to absorb it all and hope to dig into it further this week. The gist of Ed’s findings are that the walls shown around the D-shaped field on the Warren map are drastically changed.

What does this mean? Well, I’m not sure right now but I’m digging into what Ed has put forth and I’m thankful to him and others on MHO that have given me a quick education on evaluating maps of the period!!

In other news, I just got back from my annual trip to Gettysburg for the Anniversary of the Battle. The walks were great and hopefully you can catch them on PCN sometime…

More later!
