My parents never knew anything about their ancestors that fought in the Civil War.  My mother's family was from the south , My father's family from the north.  Both families go back to prerevolutionary days.

I have since I got interested in the Civil War found I have Union soldiers on my father's side and of course Confederates on my mother's side.  The interesting thing is so far as I can find so far all the soldiers were in Tennessee or Mississippi during the war.

I have a southern cousin who stills owns the Confederate soldier's farm almost 700 acres and yes he raised cotton.  Northern Mississippi just below Memphis. 

I have learned more and more about my family though this search for soldiers.  I am proud of all of them.
