    Well, now we know what the Union ghost’s name is :) I can’t wait for the next update. Keep up the awesome story/drawing you guys!

  2. Em says:

    Aaahhhh! Where’d she go?

    LOVE this whole sequence, ladies. Really, really awesome.

    So my bet is that Charlie is currently running as fast as she can into Jeremy’s arms to present him with a new story for the re-enactment – and a ghost jacket or two. And to get some confirmation that she’s actually still alive :)

    Oh. My. God. Ben’s either in trouble or delusional. Yay for time travel madness!

  5. Kira says:

    Oh, weird, I totally know someone named Matt Rose.

    Oh no, something happened to your feed! I only just realized, and when I tried to find my place in the archives, I noticed that they haven’t been updated since APRIL!

    I managed to find my place and get caught up though. I’m really excited about the story. But those are both issues you should really address! Especially your feed because it’s still broken and I use it to follow the updates, so I’d really appreciate if you could fix it somehow…

      Arg arg D: Yeah, I’ve been warned about the feed and archive problems a few times. I’m at a loss so far as to how to fix it, but will keep trying!

    Question – was it normal for people to sew their names on their clothes during the time of the Civil War?

    • Alvin says:

      Well they didn’t have dog tags back then so maybe they did that for ID purposes… you know what this means?
      RESEARCH!! :D

      Hailey actually sent me a bunch of info on soldier-labeling back when we first had to reveal Butterfield’s name. From what I can remember there were lots of methods of making sure one’s body could be identified after death – many involved getting your name printed or punched on a piece of metal or a coin, but I think any way of keeping your name on you would have been tried. Hailey could probably give you more detailed info :)

        Thanks for the reply! I honestly didn’t even think about the need for ID for the soldiers. It’s a pretty sad aspect of war.
