    Yes, many members of my family fought for the south, I don't know of any who fought for the north. They fought in almost every theater of the war.

    "If we were wrong in our contest, then the Declaration of Independence of 1776 was a grave mistake and the revolution to which it led was a crime. If Washington was a patriot; Lee cannot have been a rebel."

    "I want you to try to teach to your children and to your children's children that ours was not a lost cause. I want you to tell them that we were fighting for the right ..."

    I named my account after my ancestor, Pvt. Marcus McCutchan. He was born in Indiana in 1843, and ran away from home when he was 16. He found work in Tennessee, working on railroads. When the war broke out, he was conscripted into the 27th Tennessee of the CSA. At the Battle of Shiloh, he was wounded and taken to a hospital that was 50 miles from Union lines. He escaped to the North, and joined the 17th Indiana of the Union Army.
