The yellow flag warning of disease and death flew over the USS Arkansas as the young surgeon's steward from Maryland swung aboard during heavy seas in the Gulf of Mexico. "She seems to be an object of terror as she rides at anchor pitching and rolling," the 22-year-old sailor wrote in his journal on Oct. 8, 1864. The seaman's name was C. Marion Dodson. He was from St. Michaels, a scion of an old Eastern Shore family, and had been in the Union Navy a little more than six months. As a surgeon's assistant, he was a kind of medic or pharmacist's mate.

Once again in the heat and humidity of a Pennsylvania summer, not unlike the weather they fought in 75 years earlier, some 2,000 surviving Union and Confederate veterans gathered in 1938 during the first four days of July, for a final reunion at Gettysburg. Here, on this hallowed ground, 172,000 soldiers had clashed from 7:30 a.m. July 1, 1863, when the first shots were fired, to its final dreadful conclusion at 4 p.m. July 3. Stooped with age - most were in their 90s or centenarians - gray and bearded, they had gathered to remember their fallen comrades and the battle they had managed to survive.

To lovers of Wild West folklore, he's Wyatt Earp - lawman, saloonkeeper, gambler, quick-triggered centerpiece of the legendary gunfight at the OK Corral. To Charles Earp Jr. of Catonsville and Pamela Earp Young of Ellicott City, he's cousin Wyatt. That the man who almost single-handedly defines the Wild West would have a couple of relatives in Maryland - and that those relatives would meet by coincidence - is perhaps not as far afield as it might seem. As it turns out, the Earp clan got its start in the United States when Thomas Earp Jr. of Ireland came to the Baltimore area in the 17th century as an indentured servant.
