I watched Disc 1 of Ken Burns' Civil War last night, and--to my surprise--there was no mention of Colonel Ellsworth!! How could this oversight have occurred?? Not only that, but in the middle of one of the photo montages of soldiers in the Union Army--the regular Union Army--is a photo of Corporal Brownell, in Zouave uniform with a mourning band tied around his arm. Has anyone else noticed this? I guess maybe I am obsessed . . .
I think it is too late to mention this to Mr. Burns--
