Gettysburg, Antietam, more: Resources for you on my blog

5th Connecticut monument on Culp's Hill at Gettysburg.
During the past year, several resources for Civil War buffs/researchers were added or enhanced on my blog. All are accessible down the right hand side of the page. Here's a recap:

Connecticut Gettysburg death list: The most comprehensive list of its kind,  this downloadable Excel spreadsheet includes the names as well as the rank, regiment, company, place of death, family information, links and more about Connecticut soldiers who were killed or mortally wounded at Gettysburg.

Connecticut Antietam death list: Same information as above for the four regiments of soldiers from the state who fought Sept. 17, 1862 -- the bloodiest day in American history.

Connecticut New Bern death list: With the aid of researcher Skip Riddle, an expert on the battle, this downloadable Excel spreadsheet lists soldiers from the 8th, 10th and 11th Connecticut regiments who died at the Battle of New Bern (N.C.) on March 14, 1862.

                                        Interactive panorama: Spangler's Spring at Gettysburg.

James Branscomb, a 25-year-old sharpshooter in
the 3rd Alabama, was killed at the Battle of Harris Farm.

Antietam and Gettysburg battlefield panoramas. From Antietam, you will find interactive panoramas of Bloody Lane and the Roulette Farm, as well as less-visited sites such as John Otto's 40-acre cornfield. From Gettysburg, you'll find interactive panoramas of the Railroad Cut as well as Devil's Den, Little Round Top and more. This thread includes interactive battlefield panoramas of Cedar Mountain, Chickamauga, Harris Farm, Salem Church and Spotsylvania Courthouse as well as Antietam and Gettysburg.

Antietam Pinterest page: A compilation of photos of soldiers who were killed or mortally wounded at Antietam as well as images of their memorials or gravestones in Connecticut.

William Tipton Pinterest page: This is a compilation of images taken by Gettysburg-based battlefield photographer William Tipton, whose images of dedications of monuments at Gettysburg include amazing details.

Antietam Up Close: An examination of details in images taken at Antietam by Alexander Gardner in 1862.

Faces of the Civil War: And, of course, there's this thread, which includes images of Civil War soldiers and their stories.

For more Civil War stuff, like my Facebook page.
If you want to read more on Antietam, consider purchasing a copy of my book, "Connecticut Yankees at Antietam," which tells the tales of those who witnessed the battle and its aftermath. You can order an autographed copy ($20) by e-mailing me here. I'll pick up the postage.

And for even more Civil War stuff, consider liking my blog Facebook page. Depending on which way the wind blows, it will either raise or lower your IQ.
