The Civil War

150 years ago today the Civil War started. I may seem a little late for the Civil War Genealogy Challenge, but actually I was way ahead of schedule. I've already posted about my only Civil War veteran ancestor in "Keokuk Civil War Hospital Cornerstone" many, many months ago. 
Abraham Strayer may not have distinguished himself in battle (he may never have actually seen any fighting), but he did volunteer and he did pay with his health in service to his country.
