I am off to make a speech at the dedication of new gravestones for 8 Confederate soldiers, so if you post any questions, I will answer them when I get back.

Keep going forward and don't listen to the naysayers and the politically correct cowards.

Stout heart...

I would suggest beginning the project with a serious southern language and cultural reference set, as there were distinct regionalisms and even “localisms” that were then, and certainly are today, utterly alien outside their area.

One such informal guide, ‘Whistlin’ Dixie - A Dictionary of Southern Expressions’, by Robert Hendrickson, points this out in a glaring way to southerners. Either expressions are well known in your region of origin and family, or they are utterly alien. Just across a mountain, or state border, everything might change.

However, such a guide can pinpoint family origins and the origins of documents, with some degree of mapping.

I had the great good fortune to meet an American ethnolinguist, one of only a few left in the early 1960s, who, for a person over the age of 30, he could tell to within 50 miles their point of origin in the United States, solely by talking to them. It was that distinct back then, though rapidly destroyed by radio and television, which standardized speech to a great extent.

One can only imagine how distinct these differences must have been during the Civil War. And yet an English-descended Virginian could communicate with a French-descended Acadian in Louisiana, and a Scots Borderer Texan via Kentucky.

Hand in hand with linguistics would be a cultural guide, equally important to establish both place and time.

Elders Book Store.

I lived a couple of blocks down from Elders one year while I was in Nashville. Great memories of just milling around in there in my spare time.

In case I didn’t make it clear (and I might not have), the publishing company only publishes books about the Civil War.

This sounds great. Whenever I finally get around to finishing my Civil War novel, I'll have to keep this in mind.

As an interesting aside, I've been doing some research on my great-great grandfather's regiment during the Civil War. The 16th Georgia Infantry Regiment was part of Cobb's (later Wofford's) Brigade, McLaw's Division, Longstreet's Corps, the Army of Northern Virginia. Records indicate that 1232 men served in the regiment over the course of the war, but 467 never made it home.
