Civil War Milestone

For all you fellow Civil War freaks out there, you must be in heaven right now. Yesterday was the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, marking the bombardment of Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, SC. I've been there, of course. I've been to a lot of places pertaining to the war. It holds a strange fascination for me, and I can't remember what got me hooked in the first place, but there you go.

I'm over at Writers Gone Wild today, talking about this quirky obsession of mine, so click HERE to drop by and take a peek.

Kaylea, my great-great grandfather fought in the Civil War. When my grandmother passed away a couple of weeks ago, one of my cousins came to visit and brought a lot my ggf's documents from the war. Very cool stuff!!

No way! How cool is that? What did you find out? His regiment, service record? Give me the details!

Sadly, I don't have any ancestors that fought in the Civil War. Guess they were all overseas tending sheep in Ireland/Scotland and goats in Czechoslovakia :)
