Revisiting and Remembering Lot 17 Burial Ground in Damascus, Ohio

In a quiet patch of land just south of U.S. Route 62 in Damascus lie the interred remains of many Quakers, people who lived and died at least 150 years ago. When members of Damascus Friends Church decided to expand their church building, the place, known as the Lot 17 Burying Ground, was directly in the path of that expansion.

On May 31, 1889, a neglected dam and a phenomenal storm led to a catastrophe in which 2,209 people died. It's a story of great tragedy, but also of triumphant recovery. This was one of the worst American man-made tragedy prior to September 2011.

GYY: Announcing Glenn’s Yesteryear

Homes of the Rebel Sharpshooter

On our recent visit to Gettysburg, the DSGT team visited Devil’s Den and the Slaughter Pen, both two different areas of the battlefield which are considered to be “Homes of the Rebel Sharpshooter”.   Is it possible that a soldier could die in two separate locations, and be photographed in both locations, in 1863?  (Of course we had to go there and get our picture taken as well…)

Gettysburg Address - Reenactment

One of the things the group did while in Gettysburg during the summer of 2015 was to reenact the reciting of the Gettysburg Address.  Of course, we all had our recorders going at the time to see if we stirred anything up, and what most people don’t know, the Gettysburg Address was actually given within the confines of an established cemetery, not the Soldiers’ National Cemetery.

The Angel of Gettysburg

When people talk about women of Gettysburg, the most prominent resident that comes to mind is that of Miss Virginia “Jennie” Wade; however, there is a story that is even as compelling than that of Miss Jenny, and that is the story of Elizabeth Masser Thorn.
