Thanks for the rememberance. It turns a cold fact in a history book to a live person with a personal story.

This was great story with many chapters that still need to be told. Most people don't realize how many of us have a personal connection. Good job!

What a great story to have on this day. I am going to take the newspaper over to my brother-in-law to show him as he is a Civil War buff.

Without these men there would be no United States of America.

I have several ancestors who were Civil War vets. I know their names and sevice records. One of them, a Reb, also fought the battle of Nashville. I have no idea where any of them are buried. Near my home however, there is a city park that used to be a grave yard. There are still a number of folks buried there, including a fair number of Civil War vets. Unfortunately due to the thoughtlessness of folks in the first decade of the 20th century, the names of those vets are lost. All that remains is a memorial plaque noting their presence.
