Military Monday - March 18, 2013

In an old family bible that my brother owns, there is a story of how our great-great-grandfather escaped from a Union prison. He was a Confederate soldier, captured and sent to a prison in Illinois. He somehow escaped, stole an Indian canoe and floated down the Mississippi River to an area between Arkansas and Mississippi. He got out on the Arkansas side and tried to swim across and nearly drowned. He was finally able to cross the river with the help of some others and walked to Baird, Miss.
