Civil War Ancestor

I’ve sometimes wondered if anyone in my family fought in the Civil War. I found out, today, that at least one did: His name was Henry Thiede and he was my Grandmother Green’s grandfather, on her mother’s side.

Henry Thiede — my great great grandfather (mother’s mother’s mother’s father)

Doesn’t he look like he would have fought in the Civil War? Or one of those Biblical wars even. I’ve written more about it on a new blog I began today called Old Photographs
Henry’s story is here.
