All of these grave shots hurt my soul. I revere all civil war veterans! Wool uniforms in the heat of summer, no germ theory and all of the other hardships they had to deal with. How sad our nation's brethren took up arms against each other and now political correctness wants to erase all evidence of it! . Different historians site different reasons for the war (I personally believe money-the root of all evil) but the one fact remains...Americans in a supposed newer world fought and killed each other! 150 years later many new arrivals prefer to have hyphenated identities instead of being proud just to be an American like my European ancestors did. Shameful.
“There is no room in this country,” Roosevelt bellowed, “for hyphenated Americanism…German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans. There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.”
So it was in the Civil War. Farragut`s father was born in Spain and Sheridan`s father in Ireland; Sherman and Thomas were of English and Custer of German descent; and Grant came of a long line of American ancestors whose original home had been Scotland. But the Admiral was not a Spanish-American; and the Generals were not Scotch-Americans or Irish-Americans or English-Americans or German-Americans. They were all Americans and nothing else. This was just as true of Lee and of Stonewall Jackson and of Beauregard.-
Theodore Roosevelt 10/12/1915

The weeping lion brings tears to my eyes. So many young men lost on both sides!
