  1. The Civil War has been very neglected in books. (I may be wrong about that) I may be the culprit!

    My "Granny" (completely beloved Granny) was from Alabama. She was a"Daughter of the Confederacy"; and a "Daughter of the Revolution"
    I could be; also!

    I think I will! I have all the documentation! And I will report!

    Do you think they will be happy when I show up?

    We shall se! I am proud!

    Tell me what you think!!

    1. PB, Me as well and it is all down on paper-we may need a Revolutionary Club of our own! I know you will be welcome. It is the stories that we love from our Grannies and greatG's and those that are passed down from these eras-be is south or north that keep us near to them. I have many-surely you too.pgt
