Re: Conscription and Conflict in the Confederacy
No children that I know of - but how about streets? A portion of Decatur was originally a separate town formed in 1887, mainly by industrialists from north of the M-D line. When first created, it was called New Decatur, later renamed Albany (for Albany, NY), and finally merged (after a few hatchets were buried) into the original Decatur to form one city. Lee Street more or less divides the two sections of town, but three blocks to the south is Johnston Street, followed by Grant Street, Jackson Street, and Sherman Street. I doubt that you'll find that sort of arrangement in too many other Southern towns!!
