Honoring My Civil War Ancestor:
If your ancestors were living in the United States between 1820 and 1850 there is an excellent chance that you have more than one American Civil War soldier in your genealogy. It has been estimated of the men who were between the ages of 20 and 40 in 1860, around 50 percent served in the Union Army and 80 percent were Confederate. . All four of my Great-Grandfathers were in the Civil War, and the records that were created because of their service have provided me with information and documentation which I could not have gotten anywhere else. Since this is the 150 year anniversary of the American Civil War, I want to honor my Paternal Great Grandfather by sharing my Civil War research into his life, and the unique way we found his final resting place. There are many websites which are commemorating this time in our American history.
