Children of Civil War Veterans

National Geographic interviews the children of Civil War veterans.  As I’ve posted before, incredibly there are still some living.  There’s a short video that accompanies this article which is worth the click-through.

Extraordinary even among this exclusive group of Civil War children are four surviving siblings from the same family: Charles Parker Pool’s sons, John, Garland, and William, and his daughter, Florence Wilson. Their father served in the Union’s Sixth West Virginia Infantry.
