Want to first wish all Dad's, & Granddads Happy Father's Day! My wife and I were blessed yesterday with the birth of our 2nd great-grandson!

Here's a link to an incident that may or may not have actually happened at the surrender of Vicksburg. A chance encounter with a Union Drummer and his Confederate father. https://irishamericancivilwar.com/2...-father-and-union-son-meet-at-vicksburg-1863/

The Vicksburg parole lists actually record two Confederates named "KEEGAN". One in the 27th LA. & one in the 28th Miss.

It would be neat to verify this actually happened, especially on Father's Day. Great story anyway!
