I like to play football and basketball. I know a lot about computers. My favorite subjects at school are Math and History. I want to be a machine or building engineer in the future.
I enjoyed making the website. I learned many things I never knew. For example, I was surprised that Northeners and Southerners didn't all hate each other. There were many people who had families and friends on both sides. Sometimes, after battles,Union and Confederate soldiers would talk or even have snow ball fights together and they often helped care for wounded even if they were from the other side.
I enjoy collecting Pokemon and Magic cards and hanging out with my friends from my neighborhood. I hang out with my friends because they are all just really cool, but I collect cards because they will be worth money. In school, I really enjoy creative writing. I like to write adventures where I am the main character and I often include other characters from movies, tv and other stories.
I learned a lot of new facts when I was studying the Civil War. Did you know that the Civil War had more American casualties than World War I and World War II and Vietnam, all combined? Also, I think it is interesting that there aren't very many other countries that have existed after wars broke out between their citizens.
Working with Stephen and Patrick has been a rewarding experience. It was interesting to observe as they dealt with their moral concerns about war and about living in a Confederate state. Patrick remains a staunch Union man, while Stephen feels the ties to his mother state that bound great Virginians like Robert E. Lee. They were both enthusiastic to share their new-found knowledge and taught me a lot about the Civil War. I'm looking forward to touring Virginia on weekends this summer to visit more battlefields and follow the path of Grant's men as they headed Overland towards Richmond and the final months of the war.
