FROM THE EAST:
“Friends and Brothers:
In my humble opinion, we do most things in life by instinct. Many things we do without hope of fee or reward. We do them not conscience of who, if anyone is aware of our actions. Ever learning – What do I know!?
This website of the Civil War Lodge of Research is mostly provided for Freemasons and others interested in the Civil War, and especially the interactions that occurred between Freemasons wearing uniforms of different armies. But we do what we do, not knowing who’s looking.
Today I received a letter of appreciation from a mom on behalf of her daughter. Madison was able to use our website and its links to find information for an English class research paper. It made me very happy and proud that we could help someone in this manner. Web Master Mark – Thank you for so very much for your time and efforts in rebuilding and maintaining cwlr.org. This “Thank You” is to you.
Please read the following letter and share my joy.
Merry Christmas and Happy and Safe Holidays to All,
I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know how your page has helped my daughter Madison!
Madison just finished a book about the Civil War for her English class, and was assigned a research paper about the era.
I had no idea where to begin to help her, but luckily, we found your page: https://cwlr.org/links/
It’s been so helpful, and I wanted to personally thank you for making it. There’s a lot out there to sort through, and it was nice to find so much information in one place. Most of her sources came from the information on your site, and I’m positive her teacher will be impressed with her thoroughness.
Along with your site, she also got a lot out of this article: https://onlinedegrees.bradley.edu/nursing/msn-fnp/nursing-and-medicine-in-the-civil-war/ It’s all about nurses in the Civil War, and we thought that your other readers would appreciate it.
Would you consider adding it to your page for her? Her project’s due Friday, and I think it would really impress her teacher if Madison could show her that you added it. I hope your week is going well! I can’t believe the year is almost over!
