Dear Cousin Sally- If it is the publication of the Whittle Journals that raises your ire,please take the following to heart: The Harris' put together a publication that will be a primary research document till the end of time or nobody gives a damn anymore. I bought two copies, ones on my shelf and the public has one on the local library shelf, Civil War History. The record, not only regarding Whittle but the other officers of the Shenandoah are covered in depth. My only compaint would be that the story of the men is lacking in depth. One needs to get to Terry Foenander's site for what is known of the noncommisioned part of the crew.
