Battle of Gilgal Church (Pine Knob) June 15-17, 1864

The Battle of Kennesaw, June 27-28, was set up by a series of skirmishes and a battle starting on June 15-17 with the Battle of Gilgal Church / Battle of Pine Knob. My gggrandfather, Eli Easterwood, was kia on June 15, 1864. I have not found his grave. I started out documenting graves around Frederick Schwartz / Swartz, also of 91st Indiana Inf and others to see if I could find Eli's grave. I am using the original Book of Interments, VA Gravelocator, gravestone photos and Adjutant General reports for the analysis. No single source tells the whole story or truth, but together they paint a better picture of what happened to the soldiers killed in that battle.
