Interesting. I guess we're outsourcing -- Canada's going to remember our history for us because we're too sensitive to do so.

Nice story !

When I researched my book on the 31st Georgia Infantry, I discovered 3 of its soldiers were Canadian-born.

Dr. Solomon Secord of the 20th Georgia Infantry was Canadian. Though an abolitionist, he served the Confederacy
throughout the war, returning home to Canada afterwards.
