** This blog published Mondays and Wednesdays **

I’m particularly fond of photos with various points of interest, and this one is no exception. From left to right we have Gen. Lee’s headquarters/Mary Thompson house, Stewart’s Battery B, 4TH U.S. Artillery, the post-battle Lutheran Theological Seminary chapel, and the famous Old Dorm cupola. It was a perfect November day, as seen by the bright blue sky, though with the kind of wind that cuts straight through to the bone and makes you wish you hadn’t left your nice warm coat in the car!

Pvt. Thomas was a farmer and enlisted in May 1862. He was married to Clementine, with children Harrell (born 1855), Garrit (born 1856), and Martha (born 1860). Four of his brothers also died young . . . James in January 1863, John in August 1864, Wiley in August 1864, and Wesley in July 1865. Pvt. Thomas was buried at Richmond’s Hollywood Cemetery.
