My granchildren and I really enjoyed the Civil War museum in Greenville, South Carolina.

James Black served in Galveston, Texas. He later became a Lieutenant. This is only the first year of the letters he and his wife wrote to each other during the Civil War. I don't have access to the other letters yet.

I have added a lot of endnotes-- some of which are links to Civil War histories and info. You are welcome to add this link to your website if you want. <http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~gazetteer2000/black/black_1.htm> Thanks again, Sandra Smith Gwilliam (great-great niece of James Black)


James Black enlisted Sept. 21, 1861 in the Confederate Army in Waco, McLennan Co., TX. I have a photocopy of the muster roll of those who enlisted that day.
