just a sampling of what my wifes great grandfather and his brother wore during the war from 1862-1865 on several fronts

the chaps are the light artillery's reenactors.

the 2nd light artillery was very active at Vicksburg, Tupelo, MS and Nashville TN

That's c ool. Also, the fairly recent discovery of relatives in Norway-expanding our family a bit-said we had family in Michigan. So-it appears that more than one ancestor may have served in the Yankee Army.

Better post while the stuff is still standing-stupid libs are destroying everything possible-both Reb and Yank alike. :thumpsdown: :thumpsdown: :thumpsdown: :thumpsdown: They are now attacking Abe Lincoln-because he once owned a slave. :mad: :censored: :censored: :censored:

correct Carl have not heard though over the weeks of any other civil war monuments removed just crazy stuff like nations leaders and such. ah the stupidity of it all trying to erase history. still going through the pics, planning another trip with the Babe' maybe to Arkansas as we had two relatives serve there briefly during the c. war.....then off to follow partisan rangers/guerillas in East Tennessee and North Carolina.......maybe.

They are even now going after Abe Lincoln and George Washington. george soros and its people are behind this. That Hungarian pig "as they used to say without libs freaking out and taking it literally" needs killing.
