The New York Times "Disunion" series continues to run, and a recent blog post tells the story, poignantly so, of Michigander Payson Wolf, private in Company K of the 1st Michigan Sharpshooters regiment, and his ordeal after capture in front of Petersburg. Wolf was an Odawa, son of a chief. The blog is here: American Indians in the Confederacy
It is exciting also to read in the sources listed at the end of the article this: 'Chris Czopek, author of “Who Was Who in Company K.” I am indebted and grateful to Mr. Czopek for generously sharing his knowledge and vast collection of resources. He is at work on a definitive history of Company K.' That is worth waiting for!
P.S. It's been almost a month since the last post here. To our vast complement of loyal readers an explanation is due. There's been an attempt since Remembrance Day weekend to upload some photos from recent events, unsuccessfully (obviously), but the effort will continue so that original and fresh content will resume here. Soon, it is hoped.
