The Bennett Family in the Civil War

The December issue of the Our State Magazine of North Carolina had a lengthy article on the Bennett family's Civil War experience.  These were not rich people; no plantation, no slaves, no huge wealth.

Even so, they were better off than most.  The war had a huge negative impact on them.  I read along, not realizing the significance of their name and farmhouse toward the end of the war.
