The Battle of Cold Harbor, Alfred Waud. . .
I am a little behind with this posting. I originally intended to post it earlier this week to coincide with the 144th Anniversary of the battles near Cold Harbor, Virginia. The 48th Pennsylvania was heavily engaged in this battle, especially on June 3, 1864, in attacks against the Confederate left flank. The following is the list of casualties sustained by the 48th Pennsylvania in action at Cold Harbor. . .

Sgt Burnsteel was my great-great grandfather. Knew he had enlisted, did not know where he served. His son served in WWI, his in WWII and his in Viet Nam. I missed the Gulf War completely and spent the Bosnian war turning circles in the Aegean.
