Shawn- Fascinating. I will look him up when I get to the office. If you would, please contact me. I would love to get the account or source of that North Carolina cavalry commander.
You're right there aren't enough accounts of the smaller battles, but the nice thing is they are managable in number, and when you find a new one its like discovering an uncatalogued Faberge egg.
You can reach me through my website. http://www.historicsandusky.org
PS My brother in law is in the Army, at this moment he is driving to his duty station.... in Alaska!
