"It is well that war is so terrible, or we would grow too fond of it."
~~Robert E. Lee
Then one Memorial Day, I needed a picture. I thought of the scrolled document and the hat, and took out the box. As I carefully lifted out the hat, I found another hat tucked inside. It was John Sim's uniform cap and was in perfect condition having been stored safely inside for more than 100 years.
I packed up both hats and the documents this week. They have a new home with my niece and her son. Alex who is fascinated by anything military. He doesn't know it's going to arrive, and she promised to take pictures when he opens the box. I hope to share...
