John Turner Rae, 24 years old, died on this ground in 1864. Cold Harbor was one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War with 7,000 casualties reported in an hour's time.
Status: Located; On May 31, Sheridan’s cavalry seized the vital crossroads of Old Cold Harbor. Early on June 1, relying heavily on their new repeating carbines and shallow entrenchments, Sheridan’s troopers threw back an attack by Confederate infantry. Confederate reinforcements arrived from Richmond and from the Totopotomoy Creek lines. Late on June 1, the Union VI and XVIII Corps reached Cold Harbor and assaulted the Confederate works with some success. By June 2, both armies were on the field, forming on a seven-mile front that extended from Bethesda Church to the Chickahominy River. At dawn June 3, the II and XVIII Corps, followed later by the IX Corps, assaulted along the Bethesda Church-Cold Harbor line and were slaughtered at all points. Grant commented in his memoirs that this was the only attack he wished he had never ordered. The armies confronted each other on these lines until the night of June 12, when Grant again advanced by his left flank, marching to James River. On June 14, the II Corps was ferried across the river at Wilcox’s Landing by transports. On June 15, the rest of the army began crossing on a 2,200-foot long pontoon bridge at Weyanoke. Abandoning the well-defended approaches to Richmond, Grant sought to shift his army quickly south of the river to threaten Petersburg.

SS Asturias - Australian immigrant ship, circa 1949
SS Asturias - Australian immigrant ship, circa 1949
Joe Goodman, brother of Cindy's grandfather, together with his wife May, and sons Ben and John emigrated from England to Melbourne, Australia on this ship in March of 1949. Much more about this vessel can be found at http://www.ssasturias.net/gallery.html, including the passenger list showing the full names of Goodman family members.

More than one and a half million Britons left for Australia in the quarter century following the Second World War.  The Goodman family took advantage of the incentives to emigrate, and joined the largest migration from Europe in the modern era.
 
The SS Asturias made 23 trips to Australia between 1946 and 1952, carrying more than 20,000 migrants.  Most of them came under an assisted passage scheme through which adults travelled to Australia for just £10 whilst children travelled free*.  Many children were brought to Australia as 'orphans' to find new homes. 
 
The trip from the UK to Australia when SS Asturias served as a 'migrant ship' took approximately 5-6 weeks. According to the "Instructions for the Voyage", passengers were allowed to take with them no more than £6 in UK currency, and up to £10 Sterling "in Australian or other currency notes .... making a combined total equal to £16 Sterling for use on board.... which may not be spent at ports abroad."
 
The route from Southampton varied, with some voyages via the Suez Canal, Aden and Colombo and others via Karachi and Bombay to Fremantle, Western Australia.
