That picture gives one of the best representations of what the forces contended with I’ve ever seen outside the movies. Thanks.

What you can't see in the picture - very high heat and humidity PLUS most uniforms were made of wool.
I don't know anyone on either side survived three days of battle and the environment. Just incredible.
