Civil War Info Needed

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War. I am currently in the process of researching and collecting information on Civil War Veterans from Bass River, Washington Township, and Little Egg Harbor and would appreciate receiving general information, documents, letters, photos, etc. from anyone out in the Blog-O-Sphere who can help with my project. Some of you may even have ancestors from these areas who served in the war. Hearing about them would be especially interesting.

Following is a video clip that may be of interest to Civil War buffs. It's from a February 9, 1956 "WHAT'S MY LINE" T.V. show. I hope you find it as interesting as I did.
