My wife and I were honored to host a dinner on Friday, October 10th with our special guests of honor. Harold Becker (91) is the son of Civil War veteran Charles Conrad Becker, who served with the 128th Indiana Infantry and fought at Franklin. James Brown, Sr., is the son of James H.H. Brown who served with the 8th Georgia Infantry, and fought at Gettysburg.
Mr. Becker and Mr. Brown have attended Civil War reunions and events for seventy years but until October 10th had NEVER met a Civil War son who fought for “the other side”.
The Civil War News covered the story.
