White Soldiers Civil War-AGE
I was looking at a Webinar on Ancestry and it was suggested in order to figure out who could have possibly been your ancestors last slave holder look 4-5 pages on the 1870 census before your ancestors family group and the same after. It also said to chart the names of the white residents in 1870 and then look for the names in 1860. This webinar also said to look at the age of the 'white' soldier. My question..for WW1 and 2 there was a general age of who to enlist and who not.
I really don't know if I am explaining this very well, so work with me .
