Today the battle of Chickamauga Creek begins. In the first charge 145 years ago today Richard B. Pittman, Pvt. Co. F, 7th Miss. Inf. was killed in action at the battle of Chickamauga. The true location of his body has never been proven, but a memorial marker has been placed in the Pittman cemetery, Walthall Co.,Miss. I can only hope his body still lies on the field of honor.
Lest We Forget.
