5th Alabama Infantry Regiment Relative

I was googling something the other day and, quite by chance, discovered a near namesake and presumably distant relative, who was recorded as a private in the 5th Alabama Infantry Regiment in 1865. I have a slightly unusual variation on a relatively common surname, so there is a distinct possibility that we are in fact related in some way. Interesting but it's unlikely to send me off on an ACW tangent, even though that Perry Miniatures Battle in a Box army has been tugging at my wallet. 


  1. If you fancy ACW I have a bunch of 6mm Baccus we could use - and a bunch of rulesets inching for a try!

  2. You are going to have to do some more digging, after all it is a very nice box. :)
