"Peculiarly distinguished among the advance guard, where all were distinguished, must be recorded . . . Private J. W. Brown, of Company F, First Georgia Regiment, who, upon hearing the order to fall back, exclaimed, 'I will give them one more shot before I leave,' and while ramming down his twenty-ninth cartridge fell dead at his post." - General Henry R. Jackson in his report of the Battle of Greenbrier River.

Footnote.com, the repository of hundreds of thousands of historical documents, has opened what they call a "microsite" for the American Civil War.  In celebration, Footnote is allowing free public access to all their Civil War documents during the month of June.  Footnote has teamed with the National Archives to display these artifacts in an easy-to-search format.
