RE: Bill Peters Scott. I was so happy to hear from you! I loved all you said and will reply once I have the photo copied of Bill Peters. I want it to be as clear as possible, so I am having a print shop make a JPEG copy of it. It should be completed and sent to you this week. Like you, I think we should stay in touch. We no doubt know many of the same Native Americans, and one I have admired for so long. I was concerned something had happened to you, so I went ahead and made a memorial for Bill. I figured if you had died, and then I died, no one would be around to remember him properly. But thank goodness thatís not the case! When I send you the JPEG copy of Billís photo, I will also post it on the memorial I mad for him and send you the data you had sent to me about him. Now I have to find it! Thanks so much for getting back to me. I look forward to having you as a historical contact. We can trade information. And speaking of that, once everything about Bill is up, I still can transfer the memorial to you. Best wishes.
RE: The road to Andersonville, A story about Company K This is so very interesting. If it is okay with you I would like to send a copy of this to Karl Crawford, the superintendent at Greenwood Cemetery. He is very much into all of this and would be an excellent sourceĖĖalso, I have another source ďDavid" who may prove most helpful. Both Karl and David write beautiful and meaningful accounts of the individuals from Michigan who took part in the Civil War. (You get the facts, but most touching, is that they are delivered in context of the human beings unique personalities.) Btw, so far as I know, all of the old newspapers are housed up at Greenwood. I learned all about this when Karl Crawford was the featured speaker at the Little Traverse Historical Museum. You would have loved his talk. Punky
