U.S. Civil War
150 years ago, 1861-65, our country fought a bloody fratricidal conflict. It's known by many names: "War Between the States", "The Second American Revolution", "The Yankee Invasion", and of course "The American or U.S. Civil War".
My great grandfather volunteered on the Union side, the North, in the 3rd Iowa Infantry. Sergeant Newlon chronicles his Civil War experiences from April 1861 to August 1863 in two journals he carried with him.
