A Random Scene From The Civil War
A random moment in time, captured 148 years ago in 1861. The location is not known, nor are the names of the five Union soldiers nor the boy. They gathered away from the battle, on the dirt porch of a tiny wooden house in the countryside. Someone's sons, brothers, and husbands.
