My name is Shepherd Green Pryor, but my friends and family call me "Shep." I was elected First Lieutenant of the Muckalee Guards, Company A, 12th Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry. We've just survived a cold Virginia winter on the top of Allegheny Mountain - a long way from our warm homes in Sumter County, Georgia.

Walk with me on this 0.5-mile trail while I share with you my experiences guarding Fort Johnson during the spring of 1862. Through my letters home to my dear wife Penelope, I hope you can understand how lonely I am for home, and how this awful war has changed or ended the lives of the young soldiers who once kneeled in these trenches.
