I think the universe has a way of leading me sometimes. I let it. Today I stuck my nose into my family research again as I had the time and found a very interesting discovery.
Today is the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam during the US Civil War. It is the bloodiest one-day battle in American history. I happened upon the military service records of an ancestral relative and found that he served in an Infantry Regiment that fought at Antietam that day . . . this day . . . 150 years ago.
He was my great-grand uncle: an older brother of one of my great-grandfathers. Since I happened upon his record today, found his final place of rest today, discovered another story to tell Goodnight, and learned a more personal perspective of the US Civil War, I wanted to take a moment to mention it.
I think the serendipity is still taking my breath away.
