Re: What are your other passions?
That's pretty cool. I am a history buff too. I have my GGG(?) Grandfather's discharge papers from the Union army AND the mini ball he was shot with! How cool is that?!
My Christian Faith (I'm an elder at my church);Genealogy, and History. I had two GG Grandfather's who fought in the Civil War
and I'm the Commander of the Department of Kansas, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. I spend a lot of time marching in parades and hanging out in cemeteries.
I'll be leading my family in a tour of our family stomping grounds in southern Ohio this July at our reunion. First time they've ever seen where we came from. I'm looking forward to seeing their faces as I tell the story. Did I mention I love history?
