101 Year old Confederate recounts the Civil War
Just came across this, a CW veteran recalling the war.  What is most fascinating is the 13:00 minute mark of why he and other Confederates fought.

Certainly is fascinating and quite amazing that you can have a time capsule to events over 150 years ago.

Thanks for sharing

Canada is doing the same thing for it's WW1, WW2 and Korean vets, getting them to put down their memories on tape for the future. I will have to search and see if there are anymore of these available in State archives.

Yes the same thing has happened in Australia.

There is even on you tube a 1975 interview with an Australian veteran of the Boer war

Here is a short version my father made before his passing and I sent to the site for the bomber squadron my dad served in during WW2 and sent in several pictures my dad left me, his mission diary etc.. My father did have the longer record reported at the end as a historical record, but have not been able to find it. The short version which is on the link below I still have, but long version which recorded the long and arduous 600k zig zagging march from Luftstalag 9 originally to get away from the russians.. Is gone.. Had it on a floppy at the time and it went bad and must be online somewhere, just never able to find.

Correct. I've got the Bible he kept track of his mission log in, several pictures, few things he brought back from Germany after finally getting liberated.. sent into that website link a few pictures and that short story version a few years back of my dad's.
