150th Anniversary of "The Late Unpleasantness"

Regimental Colors of the 61st Ohio Volunteers

  In recognition of the start of the greatest trial the United States has faced, I want to acknowledge my ancestors who served their country in this war.

My great-great-great grandfather Samuel Leet Fite who served in Company C of the 66th Indiana Infantry.
My great-great-great grandfather Thomas Beasley who served in Company A of the 12th Indiana Infantry.
My great-great grandfather who served in Company B of the 61st Ohio Infantry.
My great-great-great grandfather Henry Dunn who served in Company K of the 159th Ohio Infantry.
