Spittin’ Bullets

The legacy of the Civil War lives on, from spittin' bullets 60 years after the war ended, to burying a Union soldier TOMORROW, here in Portland.

Today's Oregonian recounts the strange tale of the Civil War veteran whose remains will be interred (actually re-interred) here this week.

It seems a little weird to show up at the burial of someone who died decades before I was born. But how many more opportunities will there be to lay to rest the remains of a survivor of Vicksburg, Shiloh, Iuka, Memphis, and Andersonville?
