I was reminiscing this morning about the two times I had an opportunity to explore the McPherson barn, and I found a handful of photos I hadn’t previously featured. It was truly amazing to stand down here, nearly alone, and examine the old stonework that so many soldiers both blue and gray must have admired. The barn is in surprisingly good shape considering that it had already been standing a handful of decades before the battle.
CPT. DORASTUS B. LOGAN
Co. H, 11TH New Jersey Infantry
Born 1822 --- Died July 02, 1863 at 41
Cpt. Logan enlisted in August 1862 and was a farmer. He was married to Catharine, with at least two children, Fanny (age 15) and Katherine (age 6). He received a promotion just a short while before being killed on the battlefield, and was originally buried at the Peter Frey farm. He was later buried at United Methodist Church Cemetery in Succasunna, New Jersey, though a marker for him can be found at First Presbyterian Churchyard in Morristown.
