Mary Edwards Walker in her later years, 1911. She received the Medal of Honor for her work as a surgeon during the US Civil War, the only woman to ever get one. In 1917 the Army tightened up the rules for what you had to do/be to get the MoH...and deleted 911 names from the Medal of Honor Roll, including hers. She kept her medal and wore it till her death. Jimmy Carter restored her medal posthumously.

The National Sporting Library in Middleburg, Virginia commissioned a monument to the Civil War cavalry horse. Rather than portray a hearty horse, the monument shows an exhausted, malnourished horse, still faithful and serving, even though it was clearly near the end of its rope. We don't know what happened to its master. The monument accurately depicts the condition of Civil War cavalry horses, and shows the frightful toll that endless hours of marching and picketing took on those proud beasts.

Stonewall Jackson was just a wee bit eccentric. He was said to be as calm as a cucumber in battle and was often seen with his left arm raised - something to do with blood circulation as bullets flew around him. He loved sucking on the odd lemon and avoided pepper like the plague because it made his left leg ache. Dressed in tattered old uniforms. His horse was too small for him and he disliked battle on Sundays. In all this he was a devout Christian and prayed fervently even before battles.

NPS: "The most famous of the dozens of young drummer boys was Johnny Clem of Newark, Ohio. He went to war at the age of ten. In Clem's first battle, a shell fragment ripped his drum apart. He became known as "Johnny Shiloh." Gallantry in action two years later brought him promotion to sergeant. Clem made the army a career, and he retired in 1916 with the rank of major general."

(Morris Island, located at the mouth of the Charleston Harbor, is accessible only by boat. However, the Morris Island lighthouse is visible from many of Charleston's coastal communities.)

‘I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free.” Abraham Lincoln had a knack for getting to the heart of the matter. So it was, during the famous 1858 Senate campaign against Stephen Douglas, when with that single line, he got to the crux of the constitutional issues that would lead to war just two years later.
