Journaling reads - When my son entered high school he joined the ROTC. The summer before we had went to Pigeon Forge and found a Cross Stitch pattern for the Civil War. My son loved it so I bought it to make for him. I had been cross stitching since I was an early teen and thought oh this won't take me long. Well 6 years later and I finally got it done. It was very tedious with so many of the same colors but it is beautiful.
