SUNDAY BOOK REVIEW THE NEW YORK TIMES ‘The Georgetown Set,’ by Gregg Herken By JEFFREY FRANKNOV. 25, 2014 Gregg Herken had what must have seemed like a terrific idea — to revisit the large drama of the Cold War era by setting it on a small stage: Georgetown, the former port town on the Potomac River that became a celebrated Washington neighborhood. After all, its inhabitants once included such central figures as Dean Acheson, W. Averell Harriman and Allen Dulles, as well as journalists who not only got scoops from their neighbors but sometimes influenced and even participated in the events that they covered. Although the Cold War ended (if it has ended) with the collapse of the Soviet empire, Herken’s focus is on the period between the conclusion of World War II and 1975, when the United States pulled out of Vietnam. During those years, America was engaged by a world at least as unnerving as today’s, facing crises in Berlin, Korea, Cuba and elsewhere, along with various domestic red scares. Herk ...
Ghosts of Antietam Sharpsburg, Maryland The small town of Sharpsburg, Maryland lies in the narrow strip of the state between Virginia and Pennsylvania. Just east of the town winds a small stream known as Antietam Creek bordered by farms. This patch of farmland would forever change when the Confederate and Union Armies clashed one September day in 1862. The Battle of Antietam became known as the bloodiest day of the Civil War with over twenty three thousand men dead or wounded in a single day and many those souls, still linger. The Battle The battle began in a cornfield north of Sharpsburg, where hundreds of men were cut down after the tall corn did them no good as cover as it was mowed down along with them. The fighting then moved southeast just to the east of town. A sunken road which divided the Piper farm from the Roulette farm served as natural earthworks for the Confederate soldiers, so they dug in. They held this ground fiercely for hours. They were confronted at one point by the Irish Brigade, scr ...
In the second part of my report on the services of Hitches in the Civil War, I present those who fought for the Union Army. The following members of the Hitch family are known to have served for the North in this bloody affair: Thomas J. Hitch: Records in the National Archives state that he was a Union soldier who joined for duty & enrolled on September 15, 1861 for a 3-year term. He mustered-in in Baltimore, Maryland at the Pikesville Arsenal on September 18, 1861 at age 34. He mustered as "present" through June 30, 1862, however was listed as "absent" for the muster of June 30 through October 31, 1862 as he was sent to Alexandria as sick on September 4, 1862. He was discharged at York, PA on December 16, 1862 by a Surgeon's Certificate of Disability which states the reason as "Phthisis Rubmonalis & deformity of sheat(?)". The certificate also states that he was part of Capt. Samuel A. Graham's Co. D of the Purnell Legion Maryland Regiment of the U.S. Volunteers and gives his personal characteristics ...
