My Family in the War for Southern Independence!

Thank you Gentlemen, I Salute you! I will do my part to make sure you are remembered!

"Linger awhile and walk with me into the shadowy mist that was yesterday. Stroll across the faded pages of history and from our hardships learn the ways of a better life. Pass me not for I am the spirit of your ancestors. In your veins flow my blood and the blood of my fathers. Linger awhile, if only for a moment and through your thoughts I will know I am remembered. Poet - Unknown!
