52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: MILITARY, Gettysburg PA

Amy Johnson Crow challenges us to remember our ancestors and their families through this task: 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. I completed ’52 Ancestors’ in 2014 & here I go again. This post is in response to that challenge. The topic for this week is MILITARY.


Gettysburg


Here I am, many years ago, at Gettysburg. Our parents had a great love for our country and its history. They took my brothers & I to many historic places. They taught us to be proud of our country & all the men and women who helped us to gain our freedoms.




At that time I did not know we had many family members who had served, on both dies, on the Civil War. I'd like to go back now that I have an even greater appreciation of the sacrifices made during that war & other wars.
