12). My Great-Great-Grandfather, Ransom Myers

One reason I decided to take this trip was to trace my family's roots.  I spent a day in Corinth, Mississippi seeing where my great-great-grandfather Ransom Myers fought with the 10th Michigan Infantry in 1862, shortly after the nearby Battle of Shiloh.  Ransom lost his arm a few months later and after the war, he returned to Michigan.  Later during my trip, I found his farm there and his grave.
