Three Rebel Brothers from Old Virginia
The picture above is of my great grandfather Griffith Creasy(L) and his brother John(R), two of the three
brothers whose experiences with the 28th Virginia Infantry are narrated in the book.  They were in
their 60's at the time of this picture and at their home along Big Beaver Creek near Craigsville,
West Virginia where they settled following the Civil War.
