Re: Shiloh AAR
I just returned home and Shiloh was amazing! I am so proud to have been a part of the 15th Iowa. My hat's off to Mr. Woodburn because he deserves all the praise for what he accomplished in organizing this and bringing it all together. Being a member of Co. K was great and it was an honor to be able to fall in with all of the men. My only complaint for Shiloh is that it is really far, but not far enough to stop me, but hey, that's my fault.
This event will be one I always remember!
