Nice post. I like the fact, noted in the story, that reenactors will put dirt from 18 states into the soldier's grave–reconcilation, indeed!

Thanks for the follow up they found this young man the week before me and my wife visited the battle field and museum at Franklin. Good to see him getting a proper reburial.
