Treasure Chest Thursday - 4 February 2010 - Book
Finding a book about the regiment one's ancestor served in is a special find, but this particular book lists my g-g-grandfather, by name and task, at least a half-dozen times. Captain Nathan W. Wilcox was an architect and builder before, during, and after the Civil War, and he was obviously respected among his craftsmen. Having this in print, by impartial colleagues, makes it more than conjecture on my part. This book is one of my treasures, though it is a reprint of the original, published by Higginson Book Co., a company that has reprinted old publications for those who are interested in such things.
