Charles D. Lyon and a Call for Stuff

19 08 2009

There’s a new biographical sketch of Lt. Charles D. Lyon of the 3rd Michigan Infantry up at Men of the Third Michigan Infantry.  The sketch includes an excerpt letter that the site owner attributes to Lyon, reprinted in the Grand Rapids Enquirer in July, 1861, describing the action at Blackburn’s Ford on July 18.  Check it out.  If anyone has the article and would like to share it for inclusion in the Resources here, let me know.  In fact, if you have any newspaper articles, letters, diaries or memoirs you’d like to contribute to the Resources, by all means drop me a line!

Harry – I’m a day away from being done with my only outstanding writing project. Starting next week, I’d be happy to assist with some Bull Run medical content. Several surgeons wrote letters to period medical journals in summer 1861 about their experiences. Would that help?

Keep up the SUPER work!

Love to see the stuff, Jim. I have only one Medical post up, taken from the Medical and Sugical History, amended with a photograph from The Photographic Atlas of CW Injuries. This is just the kind of stuff I’m looking for from readers. Thanks!
