|Bio and Links|
I am a retired Huntsville Alabama Police Officer. I have been a student of local history for many years. My main interests lie in Alabama Civil War Units. One of the saddest things about the Civil War was that so many young men left home and were never heard from again. Their families never knew how or where they died or where they were buried. Thanks to the work of many Findagrave contributors, I have reunited many of these brave men,if only in a virtual cemetery. These cemeteries are a constant work in progress. There are two that I hope I never add another name to. I welcome any and all info on any of my memorials and am always happy to transfer your kin folk. If you visit the memorial of any of these brave men, please honor them in any way you see fit. Whether or not you believe their cause was just, does not matter. What matters is that men from both sides fought and died protecting the only way of life they had ever known. "Alas! In how many Southern homes aching hearts waited through weary months for news of loved ones that never came until the suspense was replaced by the real certainty that the absent one had helped to swell the unknown dead of the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, or the Devil's Den of a Northern land."--J. Howard Wert. Sometimes I come home from work with a sore back or tired feet or maybe even a headache. Then I think of a 16 year old boy lying wounded in a dark field. He's hundreds of miles from home. He's thirsty,hungry and cold. He's crying for his Mama. Now I don't feel so bad afterall.|

Thank you because of your research. I now know where my Great Grandfather is buried.
|James Coston||RE: Civil War Monument|
Much obliged for the kind words on putting a foto to a monument that U established.
When I visit cemeteries, I am naturally "lured" to military stones and intriged by the stories that they have to tell.
Believe it or not, my grandfather (-not- great grandfather) fought all 4 years with Hood's brigade. Both he and my father waited until their mid 50's to have their respective sons, so where most people are 20+ years apart, I seemed to have skipped a generation or two. I pulled his pay receipts from the archives and spent 2 weeks traversing his route throught the war, needless to say my hair stood up on my neck at several places, especially Bull Run.
Anyway, kind words like yours make it all worth while and thanks again.
Outta here, James Coston
