Social History Saturday: The Life of a Civil War Soldier

In honor of Veteran's Day coming up this next Wednesday, November 11th, this Social History Saturday is a link to a description of the life of a Civil War soldier from the Gettysburg National Military Park.

The military records we order and the description of battles help to bring our ancestor's past to life but descriptions of their day to day life provides us with an understanding of how we owe so much to our Veterans.
