Map of Chickamauga, GA battlefield - Sept. 19 and 20, 1863
Map of Chickamauga, GA battlefield - Sept. 19 and 20, 1863
This map shows location of forces around Lookout Mountain at the time of the Battle of Chickamauga on September 19 and 20, 1863. As noted in the Library of Congress citation, the direction indicator at the top of the map is incorrect. North and west should be interchanged to orient the map correctly.

Riley and Stuart Hoskinson served at a field hospital at Crawfish Spring, located in the lower right of the map. They were captured by the Confederate Army at this location on September 20, 1863. On September 25, they escaped and fled west to Lookout Mountain, then north across the Mountain to Chattanooga, TN, arriving at the Union Army encampment there on September 27.

Map of Franklin, TN Battlefield Nov. 30th 1864
Map of Franklin, TN Battlefield Nov. 30th 1864
This map shows the location of forces around Franklin, TN at the time of the Battle of Franklin on November 30, 1864. The location of the Carter House where some of the bloodiest fighting took place and where Stuart Hoskinson was wounded in action is shown just south of the town. (Note north is toward the bottom of the page.) When the battle ended, Stuart was taken to a field hospital located in the Presbyterian Church in Franklin. The Union army then retreated, leaving Stuart and other Union wounded to be captured by the Confederate Army. He remained a confederate prisoner in the church until the Union Army recaptured Franklin on Dec 17, 1864.

Photograph of Lee and Gordon's Mill, Chickamauga, GA - ca. 1863
Photograph of Lee and Gordon's Mill, Chickamauga, GA - ca. 1863
Presumably taken before the Battle of Chickamauga. Lee and Gordon's Mill is a Chickamauga battlefield landmark. It was alternately seized by Confederate and Union forces during the campaign, and was the scene of constant skirmishing as it was between the lines for most of the battle. Riley and Stuart helped carry wounded from the mill to a field hospital at Crawfish Spring on Sept 19 and 20, 1863.

Photograph of two Union soldiers at Umbrella Rock on Lookout Mountain, GA - ca. 1864
While not a photo of Riley and Stuart Hoskinson, it is easy to imagine them pausing here exactly as shown while Riley penned his "notes of our night's march" on Sept. 26, 1863 as they fled across Lookout Mountain during their escape from capture by the Confederate Army.

Postcard: SS Patrica 1905
Postcard of SS Patricia on which Leon Witkowicz travel from Hamburg to New York in 1902.

The SS Patricia was built in 1899 by AG Vulcan for the Hamburg America Line. I was relatively small at 560 ft long, 62 ft wide and 13,000 gross tons, accommadating accommodation 62 1st-, 184 2nd-, an 2,143 3rd-class passengers. After only a few voyages, it caught fire on 15 Nov 1900 and floundered. It was rebuilt in 1900 to 13,424 tons capacity and again in 1910 to14,466 tons and 408 2nd and 2,143 3rd-class passengers. It’s last passenger voyage Hamburg-New York was 27 November 1913, last voyage, Hamburg-New York. In 1914 it was chartered by the German government as a transport to Tsingtao (German China). Near then end of WW1 (1919) she surrendered to the US who used her as a Naval Transport until 1920 she was transferred to Great Britain where she was operated by Ellerman Lines until 1921 when she was scrapped.

SS Bremen
SS Bremen
The SS Bremen (second of the name, first ship was scrapped in 1876) was built by F. Schichau of Danzig for the Norddeutscher-Lloyd line. At 525 feet long, 50 feet wide, and 10,500 GRT, the ship was very small by today's standards, with accommodations for 250 first class, 300 second class, and 1600 steerage passengers. Her maiden voyage was 5 Jun 1897 from Bremen to New York with a stopover at Southampton. On 30 Jun 1900, she was badly damaged in a dockside fire at the NDL pier in Hoboken, New Jersey. The fire was started by spontaneous combustion of a bale of cotton. After the fire she was rebuilt and lengthened to 575 ft, her tonnage increased to 11,540 GRT. She reentered service in Oct 1901. On 20 Apr 1912, while sailing from Bremen to New York City, Bremen passed through the debris field left by the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Passengers and crew reported seeing hundreds of bodies floating in the water as well as many deck chairs and pieces of wood. Since there was already a ship specially chartered by White Star line to retrieve any bodies, the Bremen did not stop. Bremen was laid up during World War I. After the war she was given to the British P&O line as part of the war reparations. Two years later she was sold to the Byron S.S. Co. and renamed Constantinople, and operated on the Piraeus-New York City route. By 1924, she was renamed King Alexander. She was scrapped in 1929.

SS George Washington
SS George Washington
SS George Washington was built in 1907–1908 by AG Vulcan of Stettin, Germany for North German Lloyd. Intended for Bremen to New York passenger service, she was named after the first President of the United States as a way to make the ship more appealing to immigrants who then made up the majority of transatlantic passengers. On her maiden voyage in June 1909, sailing from Bremen to New York via Southampton and Cherbourg, she was the third-largest ocean liner in the world capable of accommodating nearly 2,900 passengers, with 900 divided between first and second class and the balance as third class or steerage. First class accusations were sumptuously appointed.

She garnered some fame while voyaging to New York in 1912. On the morning of 14 April, the, crew observed a large iceberg as the ship passed south of the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. After recording the ship's position, the George Washington radioed a warning to all ships in the area. The White Star steamship Titanic, some 250 nautical miles (460 km) east of George Washington's position, acknowledged receipt of the warning, Twelve hours later on 15 April, George Washington received garbled transmissions from the Titanic stating she'd struck the iceberg. Four hours later, Titanic broke apart and sank, killing roughly 1500 of the estimated 2,224 passengers and crew; the most famous maritime disaster to this day.

In 1917, George Washington was coverted into a transport ship for WW I. She hauled over 40,000 troops to and from the war and in 1919 and 1920 twice carried U.S. President Woodrow Wilson to France for the Paris Peace Conference ending the war. She returned to passenger service in 1921 until, showing her age, she was retired in 1932. In 1941, the United States Maritime Commission refitted and renamed her the USS Catlin to serve in WW II, but quickly finding her coal-fired engines too slow to protect against submarine attack, she was decommissioned again a year later. George Washington was permanantly retired in 1947. She remained tied to a pier at Baltimore until a fire damaged her in 1951, and she was sold for scrap.
