So for research this week, I looked up questionnaires on the Library of Virginia website. I was able to find some on soldiers from the county of Wise. One questionnaire shows that a man switched from being a merchant to being a grocery store clerk when he came back from the war. He also did not want to describe his experiences from the war. I feel that the questionnaire was very telling as it showed him raising up in station and that the war affected him physiologically.
I also have gotten in contact with the Library of Virginia about sending me microfilm in relation to the Dickenson County newspapers.
I hope to have more research next week, but right things have been shut down due to snow and other matters.
Until next time.
