Well, welcome to my puerile world.
Up until a month ago I was shocked to learn Blacks/Colors were involved in the Civil War not only as slaves but also as soldiers on the battlefields.
When reading your family discovery just brought back: dumbfounded, stupefied, shocked, disbelief, etc. Not over what I'd just learned, but what happened? Where was I that day--absent from school--to have missed a BIG part of American history?
Best thing of my dread is I've met new CW friends, and I found my niche in genealogy: Civil War military tactical maneuvers - grin.
