    151, 150 & 149 Years ago today 10 May

    150 years ago, right about now, Stonewall Jackson Crossed over the river and began his rest benath the trees.

    At about the same time 149 years ago, Emory Upton organized the 12 regiment-strong assault column which was launched at 1800 and smashed a hole in the Confederate lines at the center of Dole's Salient. One of those 12 regiments was the 43rd New York Volunteer Infantry, the Albany Rifles.

    151 years ago Jefferson Davis was captured near Irwinville, GA.

    To make mistakes is human. To blame someone else for your mistake, is strategic.
