History shows the moral bankruptcy of leftist demands for reparations
My great-great-grandfather, Fred Voelker, fought in the Civil War in the Second Battle of Springfield, Missouri, on January 8, 1863. It was a grisly little battle that featured hand-to-hand combat The bayonets were set. On February 8, 1863, he died due to battle wounds. He was twenty-three years old. It took him a month to die. He is buried in the National Cemetery in Springfield, Missouri. A small, white tombstone marks his sacrifice.
