About B7B Southern.....aka Marshall

I had the distinct pleasure of spending today with Marshall. We visited the battlefields at Cross Keys, Port Republic and Piedmont as well as various and sundry other places.

I had a wonderful time and look forward to enjoying his company and hospitality again. All of us should hope to meet up with as gracious and pleasant a person as Marshall as we visit our favorite places, old and new!

He may not wish a public thank you, but he damn sure deserves one!

Best regards,
Dennis

Good to hear. It is a nice thing to see members on this forum get along well. We all know that it can be the opposite quite a bit.

Any pictures from the travels?

I've spent some time stomping on battlefields with our friend Marshall, and I echo everything that Dennis says.

Yes. Can always count on Marshall for friendly dispositions.

My goodness, I wasn't expecting this! I am glad Dennis came to the valley to see these battlefields because they are open and understandable views of what happened. They may not be huge battlefields but they carry unusual stories in themselves about Stonewall.

*He escaped capture by the Union Cavalry at his headquarters.

*The Union artillery was trying to kill him as he was trying to get them to destroy the North River bridge thinking they were Southern soldiers, but the artillery were run off before the cannon could be readjusted.

*Coming a hairs width of losing the battle of Port Republic by piecemeal advancement and was pulled out the fire by Ewell's flanking attack.

Just some tidbits about the "Old Presbyterian". But his call for the marches leading up to his battles was the greatest moves of any army ever regardless of his nature.

Thank you, Dennis, for coming and joining me in a day of civil war discovery!!

Marshall
