Seventies Soulchild: Its an east coast thing.. lol
daviss: I see lol
alt: Does that mean it is a State of VA park?
Selma: It is still up in the air..
Seventies Soulchild: I heard that they were going to make quite a few joint bases up in VA.
alt: was it under the National Park Service before?
Selma: I doubt that the whole site will become a National Park...
Seventies Soulchild: Maybe it will be national guard or state guard training grounds.
Selma: No it has never been under the National Park Service..
alt: oh, okay Selma
Selma: I doubt it Seventies It was an active military installation..
alt: I didn't know that Selma
Selma: Many would like it to be a National Park..but my sense is that part will and the other part will be developed
alt: I was just aware of it's historical significance
Selma: That whole area was under Union Control throughouot the War It was built with slave labor in the early 1800's
alt: wasn't almost everything done that way in the early 1800's.... slave labor LOL
Selma: Just about.. LOL
alt: we were 99% employed at that time.... I won't say 100% LOL
daviss: with the top 1 percent benefitting alt lol
Seventies Soulchild: lol alt I'm glad you said it!
alt: Looks like the Confederate Soldier fella is taking 'another look' at his records. kind of backing off of his ancestor serving as a 'person of color'. even tho' he may have been known as such in his community.
Selma: Didn't he comment that the person had only been in the area for a "year"
alt: not sure Selma
Seventies Soulchild: Its simple either the ancestor received a pension or not. Or applied for the pension (confederate) or not.
alt: oh, he received a pension as a Union solider, but not as a USCT Seventies Soulchild
Seventies Soulchild: Oh yes, that person needs to review their documents.
alt: it is from his pension appllication that it states that he served with and was captured as a Confederate soldier.
