I hope everyone has been enjoying studying the American Civil War Period biographies! There are so many! We wrapped up our American Civil War study with the biographies and with talking about our own family history. We had ancestors on both the North and South sides of the conflict.
My husband's great-grandfather, Daniel Saxton (pictured far left), fought for the Union as a very young man. He may have lied about his age to enlist under the age of 16. He marched in Sherman's March across the South in 1864.
My great-great-great-grandfather, Brice Martin, fought for the Confederacy in the 57th Virginia Infantry. He died of disease in a Union prison on April 16, 1865, at Hart's Island, New York Harbor.
We will now move into the last half of the 1800s, which included Reconstruction, re-uniting the North and South, and new areas being industrialized. Inventions increasingly became available to the masses. Photography became more common-place, bringing us an extensive photographic history of the age that we've not had of any period in history prior to this. Westward Expansion grew the Nation. Relations with the Native Americans were strained.
This week we will focus on the Reconstruction.
