|Regina that sounds so interesting for you to adopt a soldier. I had never thought of doing that . I do know when visiting the monument to Stonewall Jackson and grave in Lexington I turned to walk away and a grave marker caught my eye. The guy had done it all. He was a TexanRevolutionist , Mier captive, America soldier and Confederate soldier . His name was William Wilson. I took a picture of his stone and left the cemetery. I have searched to find more about him. He was an Indian Agent and first Sheriff of Galveston . Killed in the first year of the Civil War in Virginia. I called the Visitor Center n Lexington and they put me in touch with a member of the historical society who is doing graves registration. He had never seen the grave. The man still fascinates me .
