              I'll take a shot at:
              What 3 Union generals received an official Thanks of Congress for
              their part at Gettysburg?

              On Jan. 28, 1864 a petition containing an official Thanks of Congress
              was tendered to Generals Joseph Hooker, George Meade and O.O. Howard. On May
              30, 1866 a similar petition bestowed the Thanks of Congress on Major General
              Winfield Scott Hancock.

                    Abner Doubleday in his book on Gettysburg has some very harsh things to say about Howard and I tend to agree.
                    Howatd seems to have gone far beyond his skill level based solely
                    on his being "a fine christian gentleman" he was a disaster at C-ville and G-burg,
                    and nothing he did under sherman impresses me.
                    but to his credit he did found the fine university that still bears his name.

                            Several years ago, I read a story set during the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg that was centered around a veteran of the 26th North Carolina.  If anyone is interested, I can post it here.
