I don't recall if this news was posted here, so please forgive if this is redundant.  This past winter the remains of a New York soldier were discovered in the area of the Miller cornfield.  He is now on his way back to the Empire State, and will be laid to rest in the Saratoga National Cemetery on 17 September, 147 years after he fell.

Does anybody else keep thinking just how many more of these brave men are still out there on the battlefields. Everytime I visit a battlefield I always wonder if im near an unknown grave of some poor soldier never found.
