Historic Fort Delaware

Pea Patch Island, Delaware River, New Castle County, Delaware:

 

My 3xGreat Uncle, John Thomas Conn, a Confederate soldier from Georgia, was held as a prisoner of war here in 1863, during Abraham Lincoln's War to Prevent Southern Independence. Three of Uncle John Thomas' brothers, including my 2xGreat Grandfather, were killed while defending their homes and families against the invading Yankee army.
