      Steve,

      One of the mysteries surrounding Dick Richardson's death was the nature of
      his wounding while trying to get or direct artillery fire on the
      Confederates in the Sunken Road.... Do you know precisely what the wound was
      that eventually killed him?

      Thank you, Teej.

      This is great information and fills in many blanks. I couldn't help but to
      draw a parallel to Lawton's poor diet of oysters, beefsteak and eggnog
      allegedly contributing to his slow recovery, as Elizabeth Pry claimed that
      Israel Richardson's sweet tooth, while recovering in her home, supposedly
      led to his demise. But that's an entirely different topic...

      Much obliged,

      Steve
