Subject: RE: Review: Unique Civil War Biography
I am looking for backgound info on the engagement that took over Charlestown WV in Oct 1862. The Irish Brigade was there, and shelled the city, chasing out the rebel forces who did not put a serious fight to keep the place. Who were the CSA forces there? Who led them? I have posted a request for info on a CW website, but don't have feedback yet - Kim, I though you might know, or know where I can find out.
Also, do you know the story behind the little girl killed there? The one from that new song I wrote? Her name? Any info on her Dad - who I believe fought for the Confederacy?
