HAPPY 29K HITS, EMWS!!!!! A quote from Colonel Edward Bacon, 6th Michigan Volunteers, describing one day during the siege of Port Hudson, Louisiana, 1863: "Along the enemy's fortifications the dingy-clad soldiers show themselves, some sitting lazily on their parapet watching us. With a spy-glass I take a good view of these Rebel soldiers. Here, not over 300 yards from me, sits one of the Rebel defenders of Port Hudson. He wears a slouched hat, a dingy gray shirt, and pants of the same color; his hunter's bullet pouch and powder horn are hung across his breast in backwoods style; his feet are bare, and as he gazes at us silently he reminds us of Daniel Boone."

I am researching John BYFORD, private in 19th Dawson's Arkansas Infantry, CSA, Company B (also listed as John BYFIELD). He was captured and became ill and, I believe, discharged. He never fully recovered. Family lore has it that he entered a mental fac lity in Washington. Unknown if that means Arkansas or D. C. Any information regarding this facility would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me by e-mail. Thanks.

BELATED HAPPY 26K HITS, EMWS!!!! -- from the narrative of Pvt. Jno. O. Casler, Co. A, 33d VA Inf., describing the carnage after the battle of Chancellorsville, VA, May 1863: "The dead and badly wounded from both sides were lying where they fell. The wood , taking fire that night from the shells, burnt rapidly and roasted the wounded men alive. As we went to bury them we could see where they had tried to keep the fire from them by scratching the leaves away as far as they could reach. But it availed not; they were burnt to a crisp. The only way we could tell to which army they belonged was by turning them over and examining their clothing where they lay close to the ground. There...we could see whether they wore the blue or grey. We buried them all alik by covering them up with dirt where they lay. It was the most sickening sight I saw during the war, and I wondered whether the American people were civilized or not, to butcher one another in that manner; and I came to the conclusion that we were barbar ans, North and South alike."

BELATED HAPPY 25K HITS, EMWS!!!!!! Obscure historical fact (tm.) -- During the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia by General Robert E. Lee at Appomattox in April of 1865, General Lee noticed an uniformed aide to General U.S. Grant, Colonel (later General) Ely S. Parker - a full-blooded Seneca Indian from NY state. General Lee supposedly addressed him: "I am glad to see there is at least one real American here." To which Colonel Parker replied, "We are ALL Americans here today." Colonel Parker w ote out the actual documents of surrender agreed to by Generals Lee and Grant that day in 1865.

Happy 24K hits, EMWS!!!!!! Quote without comment from a Rebel participant in the battle of Cedar Mountain, VA (Aug. 9, 1862), Corporal George M. Neese, Chew's Virginia Battery, Robertson's Brigade: "Ah, my silent friends! You came down here to invade out homes and teach us how to wear the chains of subordination and reverence a violated constitution. In the name of Dixie we bid you welcome to your dreamless couch under the sod that drank your bloo , and may God have mercy on your poor souls and forgive you for all the despicable depredations that you committed since you crossed the Potomac."

IN CELEBRATION OF 20K HITS FOR THE EMWS!!!!!!! The following is an excerpt from Walt Whitman's "Memoranda During The War" (1875): "The War, though with two sides, really ONE IDENTITY (as struggles, furious conflicts of Nature, for final harmony.) - The Soil it bred and ripen'd from - the North as responsible for it as the South. - Of the War of Attempted Secession - the greatest Nat onal event of the first Century of the United States, and one among the great events of all Centuries - the main points of its origin, and the conditions out of which it arose, are full of lessons, full of warnings yet to the Republic, and always will be. The underlying and principal of those points are yet singularly ignored. The Northern States were really just as responsible for that War, (in its precedents, foundations, instigations,) as the South." "As to slavery, abstractly and practically, (its idea, and the determination to establish and expand it, especially in the new Territories, the future America,) it is too common, I say, to identify it exclusively with the South. In fact down to the openi g of the War, the whole country had about an equal hand in it. The North had at least been just as guilty, if not more guilty; and the East and West had. The former Presidents and Congresses had been guilty - the Governors and Legislatures of every Nort ern State had been guilty, and the Mayors of New York and other northern cities had all been guilty - their hands were all stain'd."

As a WBTS/CW hybrid (ancestors on BOTH sides!), I found the following from the United States Civil War Center to be interesting: ..."Reconciliation is the achievement of a mutual understanding of how two parties fell into conflict and an agreement to work together to heal the wounds of that conflict."... ..."Reconciliation assumes that no part of Civil War history is the exclusive property of any group, Northern or Southern, but that IT BELONGS TO ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS (emphasis mine, KEB), however recent their citizenship, as the shared history of our un ivided nation.".....

My great great grandfather David Griffin was in the Civil War. he lived in Lafayette Co. Arkansas and went across the border into Texas and joined Company D of the 19th Regiment of Texas Infantry. He died 17th or 19th Nov. 1862 in Arkadelphia. I don't kno if from wounds or illness. His personel effects were sent home by Capt.C.S Marshall from Camp Bayou Meto, Ark. His widow was Ann Eliza (Stuckey) Griffin. His daughter Sarah Jane Griffin was my Great Grandma. Does any one have any info. on Camp Bayou Me o? or any battles there? or a hospital in Arkadelphia? He had been listed at home ill in Sept. & Oct. and reported dead 17th Nov. home was in Lafayette Co, Ark. probably 75 or 100 miles away. Perhaps he had recovered and returned to the fighting? why did e die in Arkadelphia in Clark Co.? can anyone help me unravel this mystery? Thanks, Charlene Peel

I am not disputing that he survived the war or that he was member of the KKK. But founder?? John W. Morton claims to have sworn him in and that he became the grand wizard, but founded.

HAPPY 10K HITS, EMWS!!!!! - Four score and some weeks ago, Wayne Beck brought forth on this planet a new website, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all Confederate and Union ancestors were created equal. The brave men who struggl d here have consecrated this website far above our poor power to add or detract. It is for us, the living, to dedicate here to the unfinished work which they who fought have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the gre t task remaining before us descendants of these individuals - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave their last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died i vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the earth!

Nice site. My little brother Ian is a re-enactor for the 12th South Carolina/4th Michigan. His url is http://www.oocities.com/nashville/opry/1402 His email address is ians_rebel_heart@hotmail.com Some of the events my family always attends are Jackson, MI, Lawton, MI, and Hastings, MI. We've also been to Shilo, TN, and this year Ian made the long trip to Gettysburg. He's only 16, but he's been re-enacting for about 5 years. He is definitely "in o" the civil war. I'm going to tell him about your site, and I know that he would appreciate you checking out his. He is kind of new to cyberspace.

Hello Wayne K5MB,

What luck to come across such a interesting and very well design and contents web page such as yours.
Really enjoyed it Wayne and meeting you on the internet.
Your Ham radio page about you in your early days were very interesting to read.
I am mo tly always on the Digital Modes Wayne and usually using Pactor, but will work Rtty or whatever if I see a Cq come across. I have been in your home town of Texarkana years ago when I was station in Little Rock with the Air Force. Was wondering what this li tle town on the map look like so we drove there and they already folded up the streets at 5 pm I think it was on a weekend..ha..
I loved Arkansas and the people were some of the most wonderful friendly folks I have ever met and your State still feels like a second home to me since I still have close friends there in Lonoke and Cabot.
Your Ancestors of the Civil War I really enjo ed reading. The Civil War has affected so many lives and reading about the hard ships of those families are a reminder of how terrible war is.
This weekend for the 4th of July was a big event for thousands of reenactors from all over even England and C nada.
Traffic was a real mess in town and so many people. I could hear the cannon fire 10 miles away.
Wayne, thanks for letting us share your history and Ham radio with you though your great pages.

73 and Good Dxing!

HAPPY FIRST ANNIVERSARY, ENLISTED MAN'S WEB SITE!!!!!!!! As an addendum, a quote without comment from the book by Jim Cullen _The Civil War in Popular Culture; A Reusable Past_ (1995): ".....history as communion has unique strengths that have been too often overlooked or denigrated by academic historians -- even when they unconsciously embrace it. A frank acceptance of these dimensions of history can be used to contest or revise some o the more dangerous or repugnant configurations of the past." (page 5)
