My direct ancestors who were alive during the American Civil War

Most of my ancestors were already in the US by the time the Civil War broke out.  I am always surprised at how many direct ancestors we have only going back 150 years.

Some of the men were directly involved in the war and everyone else was affected in some way.  Elizabeth Robinson died in late December 1860, a few others during the war (Catherine Messinger, Timney Watts, Abner Webb, Isaac Leonard, possibly Elizabeth Taylor) and one over a month after the end (Elizabeth Jordan).
