- Born in Texas in 1957, and grew up with a hunger and desire to

the Confederacy. Was raised on it, folks.
Would love to find others to talk about the Confederacy without it
being about hate, or political propaganda spread by the
conquerors after the fact.
Relocated to Madison, WI 4 years ago and found there were
Confederate prisoners of war burried here in a local cemetery.

Would enjoy talking with others about locations of Confederates
lain to rest far from home.
