Confederate Generals Interviews

Hello, Sallie here.

When I was in Gettysburg recently, I met a few Confederate Generals. Here is a video of the Generals I met. I met General Longstreet, General Stuart, and General Armistead. They were all at the Battle of Gettysburg.

General Longstreet was nicknamed "Old Pete" and "My Old War Horse". He was at Appomattox Court House, Va with General Lee. General Stuart went to West Point and there he met General Lee. He was at the Battle of Antietam in Maryland. General Armistead also went to West Point. He was killed during Pickett's Charge in Gettysburg, Pa.

Until next time......

Sallie here. During a recent trip to Gettysburg, I had the opportunity to meet singer David Kincaid. I really enjoyed listening to him play and learning about Civil War music. I learned about what instrument he played and what were some of the soldiers favorite songs. I also learned that Mr. Kincaid plays mostly Irish music.

Here is a video of Mr. Kincaid playing and me asking him a few questions:

Until next time...
