Charles,

The Gentleman referred to in the article (William B. Styple) is a very nice guy and has a knack for the unusual when it comes to Civil War history. The first time I met Bill was at the Gettysburg Civil War show years ago. He was just introducing his first VHS tape of actual film footage of Civil War veterans. That tape and the others which followed make up a terrific historic record that had lain dormant for many decades until Bill went out and resurrected it. His research for his work "Generals In Bronze" take on a similar approach of dogged detective work that seems to be his hallmark. If you haven't read the book I highly recommend it. It is, like the tapes of the Civil War veterans, a unique and fresh view of Civil War history as told by the Generals who fought the war. Much of it "Off the record" which is an eye opener to say the least. Marking Kelley's grave doesn't surprise me. It's Bill's way of giving something back. Very typical of him.
