Faulkner's Memorial Day

I decided to go out to the cemetery to give my respects.
Brought my favorite author Larry Brown along.
Plenty served but I am looking for a Confederate soldier.

Boy, it's hot in this Mississippi Sun!

Let me ask my pal Stark Young.
Known Stark since Ole Miss, I roomed with him while in NYC.
He introduced me to all his literary friends; alas, no one signed me.

Finally, we found him!

Edward Ganes White
Born June 16, 1840
Killed at the Battle of Shiloh
April 6, 1862
Thanks for your service Veteran White!

While visiting today go see Ken at Giant Robots Make Me Nervous! He wrote an excellent multi-media review of Michael Shaara's Pulitzer Prize winning book titled The Killer Angels.

Happy Memorial Day!
