The map, "1861 map of Havelock defenses, L.O'B. Branch Papers, University of Virginia" is very useful. I saw on a map the defense pilings emplaced at the mouth of the Slocum's Creek -- also see these so-called “Yankee Catchers,” at the same place, in a drawing of the river defenses that appeared in an article in the Scientific American of the period -- now confirmed. The HQRS, 2d Cav, is the first map depiction on the ground of that unit..... So many historically relevant events and locations are accurately described.
The easy, conversational style of Mr. Ellis clearly shows how very much he loves the land and its people. He does not get caught up in the politics of the times. Absolutely Outstanding History!
