In the summer of 1862, thousands had already died in the second summer of a terrible war that few believed would last more than several months. On July 17, Congress enacted legislation authorizing the President to purchase "cemetery grounds" to be used as national cemeteries "for soldiers who shall have died in the service of the country."

The biggest thing lacking in the Adoption Community is the fact that all sides of the Triad need to listen, understand and learn from the other sides. It seems to often go unnoticed that in order for adoption to work there has to be three sides to the story. Each side is very unique in what they bring to scenario. They are equally important to each other and need to be recognized as such.
"No soldier in any army ever did more service, or suffered more hardships, and none can boast of a prouder or more brilliant record than that of the Confederate Soldier. From the spring and summer of 1861 they bravely took up arms in defense of the South, and did not lay them down until General Robert E. Lee surrendered the army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Courthouse on the 9th day of April, 1865."
