Whose Father Was He?
This is a 5-part story - a blog by Errol Morris that appeared in The Times. It's about a soldier who died at Gettysburg, how he came to be identified, the stories of his descendants, the charity and villainy involved, the connections made with history and those concerned with history, the meaning of a life and a death and why it matters to us. Absolutely gripping. - LINK
