For Maggie..

Little Maggie Sue was the sunlight in many's eyes.  Born into Civil War Reenacting in 2016 she immediately became a Little General.  Her family is one of the most active, god-fearing, compassionate, and helpful families in the world and Maggie was pampered from the beginning.  She developed her own little attitude but was as sweet as cotton candy. Maggie departed us in 2019 leaving a great hole in the hearts of all of us, but her memory will always remain as we bring to you...the Raid on the Little General's Farm.
