"Black Jack"

Below is a photograph of my great great great second cousin,
General John A. Logan.

Fought at Bull Run, Battle of Belmont, Fort Donelson, where he was wounded, the Siege of Corinth, Vicksburg where he served as military governor after its capture, commanded the Army of the Tennessee at the Battle of Atlanta, and others. He also ran for Vice President of the United States and was responsible for the legislation creating Memorial Day!

How cool is that!?

You need to write more!

By the way, my wife is also related to John Logan as well!
