Thank you, dizzybint. My ancestors on all four sides of my family fought in The War of Northern Aggression.. This is a fascinating look--I'd love to see more scenes.

What great pics, thanks. I have in my possession my great great.....grandfather's discharge papers from his service in the Civil War. Amazingly, they look like they were written yesterday. I also have his pay ledger, it didn't survive as well.

This was a very interesting article, enjoyed not only the then-to-now historical site photographs, but also the oral history information presented. Thanks for posting.

I have been to a few of those spots myself, always neat to see how time has affected these places.
