Even moving away from Virginia, and down to South Carolina, Morgan said it still possible for him to stumble across new facts and stories related to Balls Bluff and the JCCW. Technology has paved the way for people to get easy access to a lot of the information already out there. It has also provided the means for even more people to add to the different narratives.

While parts of a story may be gathered easily, the story is never really finished. Details can be overlooked, omitted, and even forgotten. When searching for more information, driven by a curiosity that we start to see a shift in narrative that wasnt there before. No story is ever really finished because it will continue to affect people in different ways at different times, shifting perspectives once again.

You will never have a complete story, says Jim Morgan. Thats his take on the Civil War in general and on the battle of Balls Bluff, in particular.

In 2004, when the Northern Virginia Regional Parks Authority estalbished the Balls Bluff battlefield, the company Jim worked for at the time asked him to do research on the battle. The more he investigated, the more he found that there were a lot of inconsistencies that did not add up. Furthermore, the effects the battle had on the war were undetectable at first glance.

The battle was a mess of miscommunication and confusion, and it resulted in the the death of a U.S. Senator, Colonel Edward Baker. The embarrassment it caused resulted in the creation of the JCCWand thatdidhave a major impact on the Union war effort.

As tour guides, Jim and his colleges had decided that scripted tours were not how they wanted to present the information. It has to be a conversation, he said. This approach often resulted in people bringing forward different facts about relatives and personal connections with different areas of the field.

You have to understand what a turning point is, Jim explained. Things need to be fundamentally different afterwards than they were before, in a way that affects the outcome. Union generals suddenly found the JCCW looking over their shoulders and armchair-generalling, which in turn affected the generalship of the generals.

Jim has been a tour guide at Balls Bluff for years. As he and I talked, one thing that continued to rise to the suce was the idea that he could be telling the same story time after time, but each one was a different versionas if every single fact hes learned and picked up couldnt be touched on during an hour. If he had years, he mightstilleven have to omit facts.
