“Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I think no matter where I've been, it's been raining most of the time for the last three months, but I could be wrong, I suppose.....

THIS DAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:
INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
Saturday, June 29, 1861
STEALTHY SNEAK STEALS SHIP
Some folks still had not gotten the message that there was a war on. One such was apparently the captain of the side-wheel steamer St. Nicholas, which was providing passenger service in Chesapeake Bay as usual. Last night they took aboard a group which included a rather ugly woman. This proved to be George N. Hollins, CSN, and he and his companions, using weapons they had concealed under their women's garments, simply took over the ship. They went hunting for blockader USS Pawnee, but couldn’t find her so captured three small fishing vessels instead.

SICK SOLDIERS SURRENDER SAVAGE’S STATION
The Seven Days Battle ground into its fifth day today with the Federal forces in retreat. The Union rear guard was protecting McClellan’s posterior as much as it was the armies’--what was supposed to have been a clean sweep to Richmond was turning into yet another setback. Stonewall Jackson’s brigades, brought up in haste to join the campaign, did not make it to their assigned place in time. If they had the Army of the Potomac would have faced near annihilation. As it was, 2500 sick and wounded Union men had to be abandoned at Savage’s Station.

MEADE MOTIVATES MASSIVE MOVEMENTS
Gen. George Meade had received a promotion at 7 a.m. yesterday when he was named commander of the Army of the Potomac. This job had defeated generals who had had months of preparation--and Meade was faced with an invader on Pennsylvania soil. Robert E. Lee sent orders to Jubal Early in York, telling him and the other outlying commanders to begin to concentrate on a little crossroads town called Gettysburg. Facing him was a small Union cavalry unit with a big commander--John Buford. Meade was coming as fast as he could. The supposedly lethargic Union troops were marching 20, 30, sometimes 40 miles in a day.
From Richard Dawes (NNHS / HHS - '62) of VA - 06/28/11 - "NKTP meeting Tonight":
|Some people say that because I said that I was
Dually impressed that I am Schizophrenic but at least I have each other.
You were impressed twice?

OOH! This is one of my favorites! Thanks, Wayne Honey!

From Jack Nelson ('54) of Northern VA - 06/28/11 - "The Subject of this email is simply: INCREDIBLE!":
|The following was forwarded to us by our
classmate Polly (English) Greene. I watched it and I was
spellbound for the entire time - most of it with a smile on my face. I
remember the first time 60 Minutes featured this young man on their
program. And now I see how far he has come since that first appearance.
You won't regret listening to this young man. What a story! This will make your day!
This is one of those instances when you really appreciate the Internet and the things you can find on it. This young man is incredible!
WOWZERONI-RINI! Thanks so much, Jack - and Polly!
If y'all don't have time to watch this 14-minute video now, reserve yourself that time and come back and see it in its entirety; you'll be glad you did!
