    I have an ancestor in the 4th Texas Inf, he was wounded at Antietam and died at the Wilderness. I have a letter of his describing how he wants the war to be over.
    I also had 2 ancestors in a Texas cavalry unit (father and son?), was supposed to receive lances but never got them.
    I have union ancestors in Missouri cavalry, and they fought in a battle against my 2 Texas ancestors above.
    Another union ancestor of mine was with the artillery at Vicksburg.
    I also have a photograph of another ancestor of mine, but he isn't very interesting.

    This one is a doozy, if you like Stonewall Jackson be prepared to read the whole page, it is quite an interesting ancestor I've got here, let me know what y'all think.

    Have you lived off of poor rations, dehydrated, in horrible boots and feared for your life while running half a mile and then brought your sights up? If you can answer yes to those questions I'll consider your suggestion to reduce aim sway. -Trusty
    I did shoot a deer at 100m once in 20 degree weather with Ugg's boots on and I hadn't eaten breakfast, closest I could get to your description -Me

    My 5th Great Grandfather owned a theater and had a town named after his daughter. A horse kicked him and then he died. What a shame...

    Wow that's awesome! Lotta ties to the Tar Heel State with mustering out in Greensboro and Fort Fisher, Wilmington, Kinston, Averasboro, and Bentonville. Did he surrender at Bennett Place to Sherman?
