Going Home

It is so great to go home. I got to go back to my family because my 3 year enlistment has finally ended. Even though it felt great to help my country, I am glad to be able to return to my Father, Mother, and little sister. I feel like I barely know my sister anymore. When I left, she was eight but now she's already eleven. My parents have also aged greatly, the stress of work and our civil war has been the cause of that. Even though our American Civil War is still going, I have decided not to reenlist. I am now finally going back to the life of a girl, leaving behind my life as a Union soldier.

This is where I grew up in. After I left, my family continued to live here. I'm glad that our house hasn't been destroyed during the war.
