I am a retired attorney, living in Mobile, Alabama. I have always been interested in history, particularly the Civil War. My interest in the War probably came about because I was born in Alabama and raised in Illinois, and my family often visited battlefields during our trips “down home.” My father’s paternal grandfather fought in the 82d Illinois Infantry, and moved to Alabama after the War. My father’s maternal grandfather, as well as both of my mother’s grandfathers, fought for the Confederacy. Therefore, I grew up hearing stories about my forebears and the War. I even remember my grandmother saying, in jest (I think!), “save your Confederate money, because the South shall rise again!”

Welcome to CivilWarTalk from The Trans-Mississippi Department. Love Mobile,Alabama. My mother's family are all from Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. I hope to be a retired attorney some day and to make a few more visits to Mobile.

I hope you share some of those stories here on the forum.
