|Pipedreamer||RE: Major General Whiting's grave|
It pleases me that someone watches over his grave site on a regular basis. I thought if I lived down there, I would landscape it. I leave a flag every now and then, but generally just pay my respects to him, his wife, her family and nearby Major James Hill, Whiting's Chief of Staff. Oakdale is truly a great place to spend eternity.
I'm in the western part of NC and make trips to Wilmington a few times a year. I've been interested in Fort Fisher since I was a little boy, so in turn I've been a big Whiting fan for about as long. A very misunderstood man. I've spent many of an hour thinking about him. Did you get to see his uniform on display this past spring at the Cape Fear Museum? It was beautiful in its restored condition. Thank you for all you do and I apologize for not getting back with you sooner. I'm not on find a grave as much as I used to be.
