================================================================= origin Top-- You got this one yet?  Ralph
We have all heard the haunting melody of "Taps." It's the song that gives us that lump in our throats and usually tears in our eyes. But do you know the story behind the song? If not, I think you will be pleased to find out about its humble beginnings.
Reportedly, it all began in 1862 during the Civil War, when Union Army Captain Robert Ellicombe was with his men near Harrison's Landing, Va. The Confederate Army was on the other side of the narrow strip of land. During the night, Captain Ellicombe heard the moans of a soldier who was severely wounded on the field. Not knowing if it was a Union or Confederate soldier, the Captain decided to risk his life and bring the stricken man back for medical attention. Crawling on his stomach through the gunfire, the Captain reached the stricken soldier and began pulling him toward the encampment. When the Captain finally reached his own lines, he discovered it was actually a Confederate soldier, but the soldier was dead. The Captain lit a lantern and suddenly caught his breath and went numb with shock. In the dim light he saw the face of the soldier. It was his own son. The boy had been studying music in the South when the war broke out. Without telling his father, the boy enlisted in the Confederate Army.
The following morning, heartbroken, the father asked permission to give his son a full military burial despite his enemy status. His request was only partially granted. The Captain had asked if he could have a group of Army band members play a funeral dirge for his son at the funeral. The request was denied since the soldier was a Confederate. But, out of respect for the father, they did say they could give him one musician.
The Captain chose a bugler. He asked the bugler to play a series of musical notes he had found on a piece of paper in the pocket of the dead youth's uniform. This wish was granted.
The haunting melody, which we now know as "Taps" used at militaryfunerals, was born.
Day is done
Gone the sun
From the lakes
From the hills
From the sky

All is well,
safely rest.
God is nigh.

Fading light
Dims the sight
And a star
Gems the sky,
Gleaning bright

From afar,
Drawing nigh,
Falls the night.

Thanks and praise,
For our days,
Neath the sun,
Neath the stars,
Neath the sky,

As we go,
This we know,
God is nigh.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz LOST IN INDIANA PA
A couple of weeks ago, on my way to my brothers place near Slippery Rock, I missed my turn from Rt 99 to Rt 22 and was in DOWNTOWN Indiana. I live near Baltimore & was coming fm Breezwood.  It was about 1800 hrs on a Thurs, & I was abt to check out the White Pages, but was a little shy.  If per chance it happens again, do u mind if I stop by & say hi?  I normally take the Turnpike to the Beaver Falls area, where my mother & sisters live & thought I would take a different route to western PA.  What is it with PENNDOT?  Do they have some fobia against having good direction signs.  Perhaps they can save some money, like they do by refusing to notify drivers when the speed limit resumes after a reducted limit.  Anyhow, what do you think?  Are you still working?  What if I am passing through in the middle of a weekday?
ps#1:  I just read the message from Dave Wollman.  I attended Geneva College in 1961, screwed up & went in the Army in 62.  However, I had a cousin that graduated fm there.  Note: Joe Namath (NY Jets) grad fm Beaver Falls High School & they would play football at Geneva's stadium. 
ps#2:  My cousins sister grad fm Indiana State Teachers College (now IUP) there in Indiana. 
ps#3:  I forwarded the ASA memories CD's to Muskego,WI last week. U are 3rd on the list & should get it shortly, unless the other 2 guys procrastinate as much as I do.  What the heck, I'm retired.
ps#4:  I'm thinking about the Hershey Reunion. CharlesMcclevish/BaltimoreMD/PFC/710/Det 27/63-64

[[Chas. I am retired.  Before U leave Raven territory for Steeler land, call or email me concerning an ETA.  I assume U took 220N (future I-99) fm Bedford and picked up 22W at Altoona and then 422W fm Ebensburg to Indiana.  On 422W take the Oakland Ave exit & at the 2nd Red lite turn left. At next Red lite turn left. Look at your odometer. I live exactly one mile fm that Red lite at 3094 Warren Rd which w/b on the right with a flag pole in the middle of the yard.  If coming to Indiana fm Slippery Rock:  Fm I-79 take 422E  to Indiana.  Take the exit marked Philadelphia St to the top of the hill and turn right onto Barclay Rd., and turn right at the stop sign. 3094 Warren Rd is about 10 houses down on the right.  My phone # is 724-349-7395 & when in the area U have to dial all 10 #'s. I w/b away to BEAR camp in Penfield 17-20 Nov and then to DEER camp near Brookville 24-27 Nov as HAVE TO BE HOME on the 22nd for Thanksgiving and on the 28th for our 42nd wedding anniversary.  Otherwise you're welcome to stop by for a visit at anytime.]]
Elder,  Your article in #29 pertaining Oliver North is just another hoax/urban legend going around the Internet.  Check web sites like verify. Jim Harber/Acworth, GA/SP5/05H/Det 27/62-63
[[Thanks Jim for the clarification & Tom Bock sent me the following hoax:]]
Anyone know about this?  With President Reagan?  What were we thinking? A terrorist pilot, named Atta blew up a bus in Israel in 86. The Israelis soon captured, tried & imprisoned him. As part of the Oslo agreement Israel had to agree to release so called "political prisoners". However, the Israelis would not release any prisoners with "blood on their hands". So a well meaning AmericanPresident    & his Secretary of State insisted that they all be released. Thus Mr. Atta was freed and eventually thanked us-the USA-by flying an AMERICAN airplane into tower one of the world trade enter. Tom Bock/NY, NY/USAF/Det 3-1/Trabazon/64-68
