In cemeteries all over the United States there are war heroes buried. But, most of them go unrecognized or are unknown in the grand scheme of the war. These are the men who fought the battles, the men who put their lives on the line for their home. The Civil War is filled with men like this. These men, were volunteer soldiers who signed up by their own volition to serve and protect the Union. My great, great, grandfather was one of these men. This I.S. is an attempt to uncover his life on the battlefield and to get a feel for what the average soldier in the Union was thinking at the time.
