July 30, 2019 Evening Walk “Did you get there? An examination of Capt. Samuel R. Johnston’s reconnaissance on July 2, 1863.” LBG Chris Army
There is not a lot of contemporary writings about the reconnaissance of the Union left by Confederate Captain Samuel Johnston. This walk will examine and contemplate some of the possibilities of where the captain may have reached early on the morning of July 2nd, 1863 before returning to Seminary Ridge and discussing his findings with Robert E. Lee. This walk will be a combination walking and driving tour over relatively easy ground. Meeting place: Parking lot on the west side of the Seminary Ridge museum.
