Bits of Blue and Gray

Bits of Blue and Gray has some great links:-

Thank you for coming to leaf through our Notebook.
We hope you find something here of interest to you.

This month, you will read a story about "The Sultana" written by Jim Walker and presented to the American Civil War History chat room on AOL several years ago. Jim is a great story teller, and I appreciate him allowing me to use his stories here on the Bits of Blue and Gray website.

The number of visitors to the site continues to grow!!! THANK YOU!!! We hope you've enjoyed what you've seen, if so, we wish you would VOTE for the site. (the vote link is on the left below the buttons. Unless you have pop-ups blocked you can use the pop-up window. If you've voted before don't hesitate to vote again, they reset the numbers about the 12th of each month.

We're always on the lookout for letters or anything else Civil War related to share here on the Bits of Blue and Gray website, so if you have something you would like to share, or you know someone who does, please contact me.

NOTE: If you've sent something and don't see it appear on the site, PLEASE let me know.

If you haven't already checked them out, thru the generosity of the ShoeString Genealogy Website, we now have THREE Civil War Crossword puzzles. Nautical Theme, Admiral Farragut provided the list of words while on his celestial furlough., Civil War Horses and Civil War Crossroad Puzzle. Our thanks to the ShoeString Genealogy website for hosting the puzzles for us. They take awhile to load, but I hope you'll enjoy them.
