    3. Do you know anyone who could help Helen find family information on the Lehmann from New Orleans [email protected] please notify helen. thank you. ----- Original Message ----- From: Helen Smith To: Eula Sent: Tuesday, July 03, 2012 11:01 AM Subject: Re: wll a little history Oh...what a wonderful family history you have. I wish I could find out more about my father's Lehmann ancestors. I was sent a newspaper article that told of one of my great grandfather's sons who died in the "southern war" in 1866, but have never found out more. From the list of Civil War soldiers who served, it appears to be a son, Pierre Hypollite Lehmann who is listed as serving and transferred to the navy...but nothing found on his death or burial. Pierre was a son of his first wife. The article was about my great grandfather, Hermann Edouard Lehmann who was a musician and "chef d'orchestra there in New Orleans in the 1850s..1860s. and it just said a son of his, but gave no name. If you happen know of a website that might enlighten me or if you run into anything on a Pierre Hypollite Lehmann in your civil war material, please let me know. He may have been buried at sea..... I also noted a Hermann Lehmann who served in the civil war who was born in Prussia...like my grandfather....but this must be another man. My grandfather was too old by then. Thanks for any incite, Helen (Lehmann) Smith Waco, Tx ----- Original Message ----- From: Eula To: Undisclosed-Recipient:; Sent: Sunday, July 01, 2012 6:24 PM Subject: wll a little history I use to say the only place I could get bob to go was to go camping with the grandchildren. Surprise next Sunday we are going to the Young-Sanders Research Center in Franklin, LA. There will be a speaker from Texas doing a presentation on the Confederate Gunboat Dianne that has a lot of history related to the Bayou Teche . Bob and I are both Civil War researchers. We have traveled 6 states searching out records, seeing battle fields, old forts, old southern mansions, and anything history related. ________________________________________________________________________________________________ If you would be interested or know someone who is - pass the information below on to them. The Last Moments of the Gunboat Diana, and Her Almost Final Resting Place On the morning of 14 April 1863 the citizens of a small town named Franklin in St. Mary Parish Louisiana were introduced to the sounds of war. On this morning the Battle of Irish Bend also known as the Battle of Nerson's Woods began with the frightening sound of hundreds of Confederate muskets aimed at approaching Union forces in the sugar cane fields parallel to the Bayou Teche above Franklin. This battle was fought between Union General Nathaniel P. Banks and Confederate General Richard Taylor for the control of the Bayou Teche region. The Confederate forces under the command of General Taylor were greatly outnumbered by the Union aggressors under the command of Brigadier General Cuvier Grover. The battle was a Union victory at a cost of 353 casualties to the Union command. The victory would have been an even greater victory for the Union army if they would have been able to conquer and capture the Confederate forces. The Gunboat Diana saved the day for the Confederate forces by giving continuous fire from her siege gun and cannons upon the Union forces. This continuous barrage of artillery fire by the gunboat Diana gave the Confederate army the opportunity to retreat from the field of battle without being immediately pursued by the Yankee army. This valiant deed by the captain and crew of the Gunboat Diana came at a high cost in casualties. The Diana was abandoned and set on fire by the crew to prevent the vessel from falling into the enemy's possession. On Sunday July 8, Horace Beach, Ph.D., will present a PowerPoint presentation about his research, The Last Moments of the Gunboat Diana, and Her Almost Final Resting Place, explaining how a psychologist in California became a gunboat Diana researcher. He will share his interest in the Diana and her last hours, and present some of his research findings and conclusions. New information will be presented, as well as speculation requiring future research and exploration. Dr. Beach was born and raised in Texas. He earned a BA in Psychology at the University of Houston in 1990, and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology at Alameda, California in 1996. He is licensed as a Psychologist in California and New York. Today Dr. Beach lives in the Bay Area in a small town named Clayton. Dr. Beach's lecture will begin at 1:30 pm on Sunday July 8 at the Young-Sanders Center in Franklin, Louisiana located at 701 Teche Drive. For further information contact Roland R.
