Thank you for adding me to the group! Civil War Talk has often appeared in searches I've done for my books, and I'm glad to officially join in. I have published one book, historical fiction based on my great-great-grandmother's life before and during the Civil War in western Virginia/West Virginia that covers the period leading up to WV statehood. I am currently writing a companion story about a cousin whose family fled western Virginia at the outbreak of the war and moved to Ohio until it was over. My ancestors were Union-supporting Methodist Episcopalians whose beliefs were shaped by their faith. The current story also involves the U.S. Army General Hospital at Gallipolis, OH, so if anyone has information on that institution, I look forward to hearing from you.
