I first became acquainted with Sharon Murray two years ago. When I first launched my effort to restore the 48th PA monument by replacing General Nagle's missing sword, one of the first donations came from Sharon. . .all the way from Idaho.
Sharon has since moved to West Virginia and several months ago began volunteering at Antietam National Battlefield.
As you know, I have a fascination with cemeteries and a love for helping preserve the memories of our Civil War dead. Sharon shares these passions and just today launched a blog, The Epitaph: Tombstones of Civil War Soldiers.
Please help welcome Sharon to the Civil War blogosphere. I am very much looking forward to her posts as she provides the stories of the soldiers' service and sacrifice and a photograph of their final resting places.
