>I would love to see these Civil War stories in print. I would both
contribute to and buy the book.
> I would also recommend the book "Bushwhackers - The Civil War in North
carolina, The Mountains.
> If any of you folks lost ancestors to the Johnson Island Confederate
Prison in Ohio, there are a couple hundred tombstones there and a
cemetery. The old prison is long gone, but (part) of the original
is under the care of a historical group. We go up that way fairly often
would be happy to take pictures for you.
> I too had ancestors on both sides - and nobody won!
