BTW, hey MHO'ers you don't have to be a Civil War Enthusiast to comment, I invite you to read this excellent article it could pertain to any war or conflict, it's very moving! What say you about this excellent take on brothers effected by sad endings in a tragic war??..anyone? (Just my feelings if you don't read this story, it's your loss)

Thanks, Dave !

Having read that exquisitely poignant article that Larry sent us, I agree that it should be singled out and extolled as something special.

Regards, Phil
