WOW! 110 years old! A man who needs to be respected as a good patriot, and example of life for all people who knew him, for sure.

Vanesa.

I'd be interested to know what the Revolutionary War guy thought about the Civil War. He fought to make this a country, and then it was torn apart by war. At least he lived to see it together again.

I'd never thought of that. It would be interesting. Hey, Lori, did you know there are actual photos of Revolutionary War vetarans? I was just looking for them online just now, but couldn't find them. I've seen them online before somewhere, though. There are about half a dozen of them, taken in the mid-1800s when the vets were all pushing 100.
