Lucky is a relative concept, but this dog apparently made it out alive. Its story will be added to the Kittens, Puppies and Ponies page:
The elusive Fort Davis
Fort Davis isn't really elusive- it's big and it still exists- but until now there was only one photograph of it identified. It is beautifully captured in the background of LC 02607 and LC 02608. If interested, download the tif version from the LC website for a more high definition view, which is clear enough to show ladders at the base of a signal tree. The rectangular patterns in the grass- tent sites?
Fort Davis & Battery XXII
Fort Sedgwick, better known as Fort Hell
Dead Confederate Artilleryman
Speaking of finding places on Petersberg Project...in regard to story "The rebel in the Road"....could these pictures have been taken nearby?
Three photos were taken of this unfortunate soldier struck with a piece of shrapnel between the eyes. Not near the Jerusalem Plank Road picket line photos. Current thinking puts these three photos nearer to Confederate Battery 25..
