Confederates in the Attic

Posted by lori . 5 Comments

It began with a childhood fascination with the Civil War and culminated in this book about America’s continuing obsession with The War Between the States.  This book reads like a personal adventure filled with tragic, fun and curious stories; but amid all the disparate subjects and characters, you get a sense of how the Civil War shaped America and still has incredible significance and presence to this day.

    Yes the Spring Fling was wonderful! I’m actually in the background of one of your shots from it. 🙂 I have been doing Civil War Reenacting since I was two years old, I love it. Greenfield Village was great this weekend. Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend.
