Hello everyone, I'm new to this site, and I was just browsing through and noticed these introduction posts so I though I'd put on on here as well. I'm from Arkansas, not far from Memphis or Little Rock, but still in the hills; so I'm a Southerner. One of my great grandfathers was Jacob King, in a North Carolina regiment that fought in General Lee's army of Northern Virginia. He survived the war, surrendered with Lee at Appomattox, then headed west to Arkansas and became a baptist minister. Another grandfather served in the 15th Arkansas and fought at Shiloh, then was killed later in the war. With that said, I have strong ties to the Confederacy. I have made a few posts so far, and I'm really hitting it off with the other members.(Not really) Haha, I spend a lot of time defending General Lee and Forrest; it's probably very irritating to the Yankees on this website, so I apologize for offending anyone. But I really love this site, and these people know a LOT about the Civil War. It's good to finally get to talk about battles and leaders and history and not be boring the other person out of their mind.
