    I'm from Ohio. All my ancestors except one who was from Kentucky fought on the side of the Union. I just realize that General Robert E Lee was a hero to most of the south. They certainly weren't going to look at people like Grant and Sherman as heroes.
    Thanks from Tedminator

    There you go again with your imagining that everyone thought exactly the same which just mysteriously coincides with what you think. But thanks for comparing me to two presidents.

    I was born in Akron (St Thomas Hospital to be exact). My ancestors are from Dover, Wooster, and Akron. I lived in Akron, Northampton Township (now Cuyahoga Falls), and Palmyra Township.

    Great gramps fought for the South which the family was never fully aware of until after he died. He never talked about his service, but his kids had their suspicions.
