    This is a picture of my step great grandfather. He married my mother's
    grandmother after her husband died. With his father's written permission, he enlisted in the Indiana infantry in 1862 at the age of 17. He was with Sherman as he marched through Georgia. I'm told "Grandpa Casey" spent many years in and out of veteran's hospitals dealing with both physical and mental issues as a result of his war experiences. I'm also told that he had a wonderful voice and when he had too much to drink, he would belt out the song "Marching Through Georgia" and you could hear him all the way down the street! He's wearing a Civil War Grand Army of the Republic medal which was worn by Civil War veterans.

      That is a nice photograph of a Civil War veteran. It is nice when these stay in the family.

      Do you have his records from the National Archives?

      Thanks, Scott.
      Yes, I have both his Civil War records and records from the US National Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers. I've added the Civil War record.

      I was curious as to the lyrics of MARCHING THROUGH GEORGIA so I posted them for all to read.
