Scots in the Civil War

     Scotsmen and women fought in the American Civil War, many not knowing the why's or the wherefore's, but they chose to fight for their adopted country, Union or Confederate, in some cases brother against brother

 

     The information on the following pages has been found all over the internet, in books, from snippets of information passed to us by friends and a lot of hard work by my late friend Larry McGibben

 

On November 15th 1864,

General Sherman cut out of the back of Atlanta with 68,000 hard worn Yankees. He drove 'em down through Georgia to the sea.

Lord they made everybody suffer

The Best Civil War Music album ever (IMHO)
