I’ll be headed over to Gettysburg and Antietam shortly, and I have been reviewing Civil War history via several sources.
John Brown and his raid on Harper’s Ferry served as a precursor. Been there.
General McClellan made his bones at The Battle of Rich Mountain. Been there. There is a wonderful little cemetery at Beverly, WV with Civil War dead, and other similar resting places are scattered around the immediate area. Numerous ‘little skirmishes’ took place nearby
A word… Synchronicity; is on my mind. I don’t think my concerns fall under the Conspiracy Nut umbrella? YMMV
