Hi Larry,

Just curious since there was no press passes in this war, what would happen to a Union reporter if captured by the Confederates? Also in the ads I notice a dentist ad, it had to be really scary, & painful to visit the dentist during these times, double ouch!?

Happy 4th,
MD

BTW, Nice articles on both big battles Gettysburg, & Vicksburg,
It wasn’t going to be a Happy 4th in 1863 for the South!
