My great-great-grandfather served as a soldier in the Civil War, on the Confederate side. In his later years, he wrote about his experiences. The journal has been kept in the family, and I converted his writings into electronic form.
For what it’s worth, my great-great-great grandfather on the other side of my family served in the Union army. Both of these ancestors of mine were present at the battle of Shiloh, fighting on opposite sides. I’m grateful that they didn’t shoot each other.
