While researching websites for my series, Social History Website of the Day, I stumbled on a blog with a story that I thought would be of interest. HistoryMom wrote back in January about some Civil War soldiers were to be moved for progress in Pima County, Arizona. Their remains were going to be placed in cardboard banana boxes.
Now, who is the person who thought that one up? Anyway-a man volunteered to make coffins for the soldiers.
Now that is a genealogy hero. Here is the link to the story, http://themommyarchives.blogspot.com/2009/01/mention-of-forgotten-or-abandoned.html
