Civil War Sailors Interred

There were several articles. I like this one. It includes the facial reconstruction. Of course they would have had beards, (at least the older man,) and they would not have looked quite so much like Clark Kent.

Husband watched a video about the burial yesterday and got quite weepy.

I get emotional myself, but not choked up with goopy patriotism. I just have a real dislike of shipboard disasters. (Any ship.) After trusting him to a ship for 20 years, I am still not ok with ships sinking!

Anyway, they got samples to try and chase down the DNA. They may figure out someday who these men were.
