    More great info , & yea the one I dug is a few inches long by around 1 inch.
    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.

    Just looking closer at the image you posted & Richter is written the exact same way on the example I dug.
    Hmmmmm ? I wonder how long the used that pattern of writing , as this would have been a late war site .

    Also thinking a Harmonica would have been a great way to pass the time in camp along with other activities , Could 'Y'all ' picture soldier's in the Civil War sitting around on their I -phones all day while in camp ? That would be bad for comrade-day.
