Veterans lost in the wilds of Alameda

See?  It's in the paper
  Well, vets did get lost in Alameda.  In 1902!  Of course the geezer and Wilbur got lost looking for them in 1962 (probably).
  It's interesting that anyone got lost, but I wasn't there in 1902 when veterans of the Civil War left a church on Grand Street through a door different than the one they entered.  I guess from reading about it there were a lot of oak trees north of the church.  I'll show you a map of the area as it is today, you could still get lost, maybe, not likely it you ask for direction.
