A fascinating three-part series has appeared thisweek at New York Times.com. It is an exploration of the well known story of the Union soldier Amos Humiston found dead at Gettysburg with no other identification than a photo of three chilrdren in his hand.

The series explores the odyssey of this photo and how it eventually became tied to three children in New York, the Humiston orphans and their mother believed to be the widow of the deceased  soldier in question.

The series makes a great detective story. I won't give any other details because I don't wnat to give away the story. I highly recommend this to Gettysburg fans and to folks who enjoy a good detective story.
