The Civil War's Scots-- Part 1

From the Jan. 22, 2013, BBC News: Highlands & Islands "Scots who fought in American Civil War remembered" by Steven McKenzie.

In keeping with the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War, there are various projects going on in the British Isles.  One of them is compiling a list of Scots who fought in the war.

One of them was George Henry McKenzie (I have to wonder if he is any relation to the writer).  He was born in North Kessock near Inverness and rose to the rank of captain commanding a company of black soldiers.

Edinburgh-born Kate Cumming was a nurse who cared for wounded Confederate soldiers.
