Thanks Frank! My two g g grandfathers were in the 12th NJ Vols and the 213th Pa Vols….their brothers were in the 1st NJ Cav (George Stewart was an MOH winner for capturing a flag at Payne’s Crossroads) and the others were in the 6th Pa Cav, and the 17th Pa Cav. It’s been fun learning about them from the records, old family photos and family stories of course.

How about you? Any ancestors in the Civil War?

Hey Paul, My ancestors didn’t arrive in the US until the early 1900’s. No family ACW history but my Father was a tanker in the 8th Armored Division and fought in the ETO during WWII. That greatly inspired my interest in WWII which lead me into the ACW and Revolutionary War.

Thanks for asking!

That is really cool. I would have loved to have spoken with your dad. I forget the route of the 8th but will have to look it up later. My great uncles both served in WW2 and the one I was very close with growing up and he encouraged my history passion as well.
