Hi:

new to the forum

I have read and collected some info on Porter and the "Bloody 8th" and the 8th NY Heavy Art.

But always looking for more

has anyone watched the DVD/VHS Civil War Combat
that covers Cold Harbor and was produced by the History Channel ?

does this coverage include Porter in any detail ?

I'm interested in buying it but only if it covers Porter in some detail

I'm also interested in the "Civil War Combat: A Tragedy at Cold Harbor"

I'm also interested in any magazines or articles that cover Porter's role

Thanks

Lew

Just an update:

I bought the DVD for Civil War combat and the Cold Harbor segment does cover Porter very well.

The segment focus is on the June 1 chage by the 2nd Connecticut under Kellog (who also dies) and the June 3 charge by the 8th New York under Porter

I am also interested in any other films/games/magazines that feature Porter and the 8th NY

It was interesting to see that he is more than just a Niagara Falls "legend"
