We went up to an old army fort from the Civil War (Camp Floyd). We had hopes to find the author who wrote a book about the soldiers who were there, one of them being my great-great-great grandfather. In that book, my great-great-great grandfather is said to have stabbed a man to death. We didn't have any records on that, so we wanted to figure out where the author got that information and whether or not it is true!
The weather was so perfect for our expedition...slightly rainy!
Well, we didn't actually have the book. She had just read that online or something, we were planning to buy the book there. But the author was not present! We thought he was supposed to be there signing books! And unfortunately the guy running the gift shop didn't know exactly which book we were talking about, so we had to look through many of them to find what we were looking for. It took a while, but we finally found the paragraph about my great-great-great grandfather (Louis Stursburg)!
