The American Civil War began 150 years ago, early this coming Tuesday morning, April 12, 1861. Here is a good piece to get the commemoration started.
I have already published 13 posts related to the Civil War [See label 'Civil War' in lower left sidebar] including stories of most of my Civil War ancestors. More will be added, I'm sure.
The History Channel coverage can be found here.
I just finished reading the big thick book, Team of Rivals, set during this period, of course, so I am ready for the commemoration to begin, in all its forms.
Families are Forever! ;-)
