A never ending struggle seems to be getting people to look up their own histories. The only mind they can make up is their own, but to assume one knows what an ancestor was thinking or doing because they lived in a certain time or place seems to be a bit far-fetched. That mindset seems especially strong when dealing with the Civil War, and some folks are less than delighted to realize that they had ancestors that thought for themselves.
If you have an ancestor in the local area with these names, you may have links to our original regiments.
