69th NYSM Tour Handouts (2)

7 05 2019

Hi all – we will likely cover the formation of an Infantry or “Hollow” Square on the retreat from the battlefield during our tour on Saturday. So, here is a photo from Miller’s Photographic History of the Civil War to help you visualize one.

Also, any letters or accounts that I will be quoting from are all here on the site. The easiest way to find documents and transcriptions relative to the 69th is to go to the Union Order of Battle in the right hand column of this page under Bull Run Resources. Then scroll down to Tyler’s Division, Sherman’s Brigade, and you’ll find the 69th with links to all the accounts stored here, be they letters, diaries, or Official Reports. You can copy and paste into whatever type of document program you prefer, and print or download them. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. I don’ really think you’ll need to take those with you on he field, however. But they make for great pre- or post-tour reading!

Harry–getting on the plane tomorrow at 6:20 AM–I look forward to finally meeting you, Damian, Joe, and anyone else who might be there. My cell phone number is 831 444-1948.  Remember Ellsworth–even if he wasn’t in the 69th!
