Descendants' Sites take 'Net by Storm!

That's right, if you're a descendant of a Civil War soldier, or just an interested history buff, then you may be interested in the surging presense of CW descendants organizations' on the internet. Both the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War and the Sons of Confederate Veterans now feature webpages, including sections on points of contact, recent projects of the societies, the missions and histories of both groups, and various links to sub-groups.
These organizations are very active in their respective regions of the country, focusing on helping to preserve their ancestors' heritage, through such activities as memorial services, grave markings, historical presentations, fund-raisers, publications, meetings, public relations, and more.
Their ancestors would indeed be proud of them for devoting this time and energy to memorializing their often brave and selfless sacrifices.
Check these two nicely designed sites out, y'all just might be interested in hitchin' up yerself!
