General JH Martindale

My great great grandfather was Colonel Edward Martindale who fought in the Civil War. However, until today I was unaware that his brother was General John H. Martindale, who also served in the Civil War. Ironically, both were the last attorneys in our Martindale family until my son, Edward Thomas Martindale, recently graduated from law school. Family history can be facinating and it was fun to find this picture.
