Hey, where you be at these days?
A discharge medal from an ancestor! That is incredible. I have 6 ancestors that served in South Carolina Regiments; 4 were brothers who joined the 17th. All died but one. I have his canteen and another relative has a sword reputed to be his. He kept a diary of which I have a type set copy which is cool to read.
I love the history but that is what it is. I am not one of those who speaks of the war in the present tense...LOL
I like your welcome to the Aussie. "Welcome from up over" ha that's cleaver. The 1865 in you user ID have any relation to the "Great War of Northern Aggression?
Congrats on the new truck! Looks great!
