By order of the commanding general, I am here to remedy the lack of Civil War blogs on Tumblr. If you have any interest in the Civil War (vaguely interested/mildy/obsessed/
fanatical), then this can be your headquarters. If you have any inquiries or questions, I'll be here. Both Yankees and Rebs accepted of course!
Maj. Gen. KathyRose (well, okay, I'm a 17 year old English girl but no one has to know that!)
