I came across one of your posts from 2006 where you referred to a story from an ancestor of a trooper from the 3rd Cav MSM who took a saber wound across the belly while hiding from Todd's rebels who were sticking sabers into corn shalks. If I was to guess, it was either my grandmother whom you talked to, who recently passed away.
You had mentioned his name was Thomas Hobbs, and when I read that, my heart skipped a beat. He is my GGG grandfather, also one of my personal heroes, and I am doing an immense amount of research into his unit's involvement in the Civil War.
I'm a historian with Missouri Baptist University and have been considering writing an article on the skirmish at Gosline's Lane. Would you be available to talk via email or phone? I would love to get some of your interpretive insights on the Third Cav MSM and Gosline's Lane.
