A Note to Parents

Parental Notice: This site may not be suitable for young children. While American Civil War literature can exhibit the tendency to focus on the valorous and inspiring actions of the men who fought in this conflict, this web author believes that no web site should seek to disguise the raw, brutal nature of war. Included within you will find an occasional 19th century battlefield photograph which may include disturbing images of soldiers killed in action. Therefore, some of the pictures, descriptions, or quotes may require parental supervision and guidance.

This site does not seek to glorify war, but to honor the men and women who, under exceptionally trying, sometimes terrifying circumstances, helped to shape a young nation during a tragic time in our shared history.
