Nice post. I am interested in the Civil War and live about 30 minutes from Antietam Battlefield. We want to visit Gettysburg this year.

Thanks for sharing this, Sue--I love history and family research! Been working on my own family tree for a couple of years now, not very devotedly, but I've uncovered a few scandalous facts that will one day make a great novel :D

Happy holiday weekend, and thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!
