My 6th great grandfather!
When you write a journal, you do it for yourself and I'm sure you don't think for a second that your 6th great granddaughter would be binge reading it over 200 years later, on the edge of her seat, wondering what life must have been like for you & the soldiers you commanded.
I'm grateful that I'm able to get to know a little bit more about John Bell Tilden, my 6th great grandfather, through his very own writing. He seemed kind, educated, and cultured. I'm proud to be of his lineage.
Thank you for archiving this gem!
The family history treasure hunt continues!
