On the toolbar to the right of the main text, undneath the "Who am I" box, I have added a gadget of a slideshow of the Civil War headstones I have found throughout Campbell County, Kentucky so far. Just click on the pictures and if your pop-up blocker is not on, you can look at individual pictures, or the whole slideshow in a different window.
I hope I will be able to find more headstones and get more pictures starting next spring when the weather is better, but I think I had a good start this year, with quite a few photos, and even a couple of stories about some of the men. Earlier this year, I made a post about the fighting Seither brothers, 3 of whom fought for the Union and one for the Confederacy. The headstone for August Seither (his name spelled Seiter) is among my pictures - I still hope to find pictures of at least 2 of his brothers, who I think are buried in the area.
I like how this new gadget looks and hope it adds something nice to my blog.
