    1. I saw a little girl in a white dress
      Hopping from rock to rock and singing or humming in the winter of 1997. No parents around in a dangerous place? I always wondered

    2. since there were no civilians killed on this part of the battle field, she can’t be linked to the battle, BUT this is near the devil’s den which had an evil reputation long before 1863. The region was settled by the white man more than a century before the civil war and before them the local Indians avoided it.
