    Confederate soldiers were hardly considered "traitors" as our Liberal brethren would try and convince us, au contrare, they were honored members of our military and often drew soldiers pensions.

    That is good stuff there. Way cool to me that his descendant,your ancestor,was so involved in the UDC. They did and do so many wonderful things to honor Confederate soldiers.

    Union soldiers were important too, but our Confederate ancestors are now being dishonored. Thank you for your kind words, sir. I feel blessed that I was close to my grandfather who lived to be 106 and had a memory like a steel trap. He related second-hand accounts of the civil war directly to me. I'm one of the few people on earth who can say that.

    You are blessed. The only grandparents I had who might have had such second-hand accounts both died while I was still too young to know what I didn't know. Me and a distant aunt and 2nd cousin seem to be the only ones interested in our family Civil War history. In my direct family,that interest is probably gonna die with me. Hope not.
