Johan you indicate that Sherman disbanded the pioneers. Please give some direction for additional reading. My Great grandfather who was in the march to the sea was injured while building a railroad bridge after leaving Savana. He was invalided out due to his injuries. He had to keep surgons from amputating his right leg three times. He had an open wound and would periodicaly have bone chips work out of it untill his death. He did receive a pension for the injury, I have a letter where he indicated he was assigned to pioneers shortly before Savanna was taken. 

Just a thank you for your interest in the grunts and the fact of who fougth the battles that were directed by the generals. I really like the picture of camp life. I recognize the posture having assumed it a few times myself.
