Subject: Sharpshooters grave

Message Detail:
Staying on the sharpshooter subject I have a question for everyone. No matter which position the sharpshooter was in last, does it make sense that his body would have been buried nearby? Is it possible it is still there? A lone grave in a fairly remote area could have been overlooked very easily when the southern dead were moved to cemeterys in the south. Would the uniform buttons still be intact enough to tell what state they were from? Does anyone know if any digs have ever been done in this area? Bullets of the type used in a heavy sniper rifle if found would prove that the soldier was indeed a legitimate sharpshooter. The odds are high but I believe the evidence is there to prove one theory right.
