Re: Skirmish of Pritchard’s Crossroads

I agree. Don't believe that the town of Bentonia was even there during the war. Looking at the map in the book I referenced earlier, if it is to scale, the distances from Sataria to Mechanicsburg to Pritchard's Crossroads come very close to matching the distances on Google maps from Sataria to Mechanicsburg to Bentonia. I think you have located the spot.
