I am close enough to Gettysburg, fortunately, to visit often. I've done that for years. Last year I started a huge project. I am compiling a list of the Gettysburg dead... name by name and roster by roster. Some of the regiments have outstanding records and some are nearly non-existent which is very sad. Around 11,000 (estimates vary but I think that's pretty close) boys in blue and gray died from those three days of fighting in July of 1863 and this is my small way to remember them. I just passed 9,000 last week. I'm keeping name, regiment, company, circumstances of death, original and subsequent burials, and names of parents. (Not sure why I started that, but I'm into genealogy, too, so probably related.) Anyone else here working on a data project like this for any of the battles of the Civil War? (Or other wars for that matter?) It's sobering... and so very rewarding.
