Tim, I just re-read your post about the "Richmond Howitzers" artillerists you saw at Cold Harbor in June.  (Smacks palm to forehead).  Shoulda read it carefully the first time.

My friend and the rest of the gun crew were at the Cold Harbor event in June.  I wasn't there, so I just assume the gun they fired was the Richmond Park's one and only 3" ordnance rifle.

Cold Harbor is one of the ten units in the Richmond National Battlefield Park.  They're scattered in and around Richmond, some related to the Peninsula Campaign of 1862 and others to the Overland Campaign of 1864.  Two are downtown, the Tredegar Iron Works and the Chimborazo Hospital, now a medical museum.

So much to see, so much to learn, so many places to visit!  Patty
