Soldier comes home after 147 years

Calvin Britt left Robeson County, N.C., in March 1863 to fight for the South, never to be seen again by his wife and seven children. Eventually a descendant, Jim Walters, found him and brought him home to be buried near comrades. A stone lists Britt's name. "It's a marker indicating his place in history," Walters said. "... It allows his descendants a little bit of peace and closure." • Article
