      I seem to recall reading that it was Weed firing from East of the
      creek. He had been holding back for fear of hitting his own men, but
      once the Confederates hit the top of that little ridge he opened fire.

        Gang,

        I am forwarding an earlier message since I have not seen it show
        up, yet, on here. If anyone else has received it previously,
        input to the question would be greatly appreciated.

        To Be A Virginian, either by birth, marriage, adoption, or even
        on one's mother's side, is an introduction to any state in the
        Union, a passport to any foreign country, and a benediction from
        the Almighty God. --Anonymous
