Thumbs up Gettysburg

141 years ago today the first of 3 bloody days of battle started at Gettysburg. My great grandfather missed this battle for some reason. Got me thinking that between having ancestors fighting in the Civil War , WWI and WWII I am very lucky there is a me today. Salute to both sides in this battle of Gettysburg

Glad I wasn't there!!!!

Hell, forget wars; look at the Spanish flu, the Black Death, yellow/scarlet fever, cholera, infant mortality....

It's a mystery there's any of us at all.

Thumbs up DESDICHADO

Your right. I went back and looked and my great granddad had 9 children after he got home from the war and 4 died before they were five years old. My granddad made it. I am very lucky indeed , now I am an Opa. Gonna make sure he grows up knowing the yesterdays that it took for him to live free today.. Thanks Desdichado.

Yeah, Desdichado,
We all have one - that old cemetary with tombstones you can hardly read. Found a civil war soldier's - died five days after Gettysburg. Farther out, in the "newer"graves, a half-dozen or so of kids and young people and oldsters who "hit the wall" in 1919. Spanish Influenza, I guess.
My kids are doing a great job with their Gremlins, DMZ-LT, but I'll keep checking on them ( and feeding and changing.....)

Howdy Razor,glad you posted and Welcome aboard I've been thru Del City a few years back when I went to Visit friends at Tinker AFB, I'm just getting into the Reenacting/color guard as a member of the 26th Ga, Co.D(INF) CSA here in SE Georgia. On the 25th we have a couple of Grave Marker dedications for two Confederate Soldiers buried near Waycross, GA. Also that same weekend Our group will be going to Old Bethel Church for the Battle reenactment there. I will have to check out your website .BTW I am the Decendant of Four Confederate Soldiers (One GRGrampa and 3 GrUncles) They all served with Gen Price in Missouri So, I have one Shell Jacket with Missouri Buttons and One with Georgia Buttons.
