Thank you so much for the information and I definitely want one of the books. If indeed this Solomon Copeland turns out to be the son of Joseph "Big Joe" Copeland then I will have found a Civil War ancestor. I have just this year started searching my geneology so this is quite exciting.
I am glad a 25th Tn reenactment group is forming. My husband however, a reenactor for many years now, was hoping to form the group here in KY. We will check with that group when we are in TN next time.
Thanks again and I'll watch for your book. Before I moved to KY last March I worked in the ER at Livingston for a few years and took care of your mom several times. I hope she is doing well.
