Really, I could go on and on. Many members of both sides of my family served in the civil war and a great many of the young men in the family died. Possibly my most famous realtive was Addison Milton Wier, who was my paternal g-g-grandfather. He worked at the Atlanta Journal Constitution and wrote under the pen name Sarge Plunkett. He wrote a book about his adventures in the civil war as well as southern folk tales.
