  1. A freelance journalist who loves history?! It's like looking into a mirror. ;)

    Thanks for finding me and leading me to your blog. I think it is awesome you offer so much interesting information about the civil war here. I'm actually really impressed and I can't wait to dig through some of your old posts.

    You left a comment on my blog about how you wished schools had taught about female soldiers and whatnot, and I completely agree with you. I honestly have learned way more about history (American and world) by reading books on my own as an adult than I EVER did in school. And there are so many fascinating stories and people who should be recognized!

    I really enjoyed this post by the way. I love learning about random historical people who are related. Makes me realize what a small world it is...

    1. Thanks so much Jennifer! So happy we found each other's blogs! :-)
