Wordless Wednesday: The Battle of Anderson

Recreating the Battle of Anderson.

The Confederate line.

Federal troops pitch their tents on one side of the battlefield.

On 1 May 1865, Confederate and Union forces met on a small field in Anderson County, South Carolina, three weeks after Lee’s surrender at Appomattox. This obscure skirmish was one of the last to take place east of the Mississippi. Re-enactors meet at a field on the outskirts of Honea Path to recreate the battle for observers over three days each April.

Edwin G. Dunham, crew member on the Little Lulu.

There is some confusion over this gentleman’s name. I have his first name as Edward, Erwin, and Edwin, and his surname as both Dunham and Durham. If anyone can help sort out his name, please let me know, as I would be most appreciative.
