Our Country's Fiery Ordeal

A blog about the American Civil War, written and maintained by historian Daniel J. Vermilya, author of The Battle of Kennesaw Mountain (History Press, 2014) and James Garfield and the Civil War (History Press, 2015)

Dedicated to my great-great-great grandfather, Private Ellwood Rodebaugh, Company D, 106th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, killed at the Battle of Antietam, September 17, 1862.

"And may an Overuling Providence continue to cause good to come out of evil, justice to be done to all men where injustice has long prevailed, and finally, peace, quiet, and harmony to come out of this terrible confrontation and our country's fiery ordeal." -- Albert Champlin, 105th Ohio, Diary entry of June 19, 1864 (Western Reserve Historical Society)

Today at Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield

I am spending the day hiking around Kennesaw Mountain.

What started out as a very foggy morning...

Has fast become a beautiful day.

Mid 60s, sun, and lots of trails on a battlefield to hike. What a great day to be in Georgia.

And I met a new friend today. This is Albert, the Kennesaw Mountain lizard 
(or salamander, whatever). 


Greetings from Georgia! I'm headed back out to hike the trails for the rest of the day!
