Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

2006 has been a year with an exceptional mix of joy and sorrow for our family. While none of us know with any certainty what awaits us in 2007, it seems good that the New Year somehow brings a "clean slate," an opportunity to make a new beginning.

For those who will be traveling over the coming weeks, my prayers are with you as you travel.

Did you know? #1

This is the first in what I hope will become a series, in which I want to share some information about our family history with anyone who may be interested.

Did you know that during the Civil War the Bragg family supplied two Generals, one Northern and the other Southern?

The Bragg family also provided two state govenors during this same general period. Thomas was governor of NC (he was Braxton's older brother, the Confederate general alluded to above). He served as NC Governor from 1855-59, then as a NC senator from 1859-61, and finally as the Attorney General for the Confederate States of America, 1861-62. After the war Edward S. Bragg, the northern general mentioned above, was elected Governor of Wisconsin.


PS Thomas and Braxton had another brother, John, who held various offices in AL, including Senator and Supreme Court judge.

Welcome to the Bragg family blog site.

This site is designed to help our family keep in touch, share news, memories, plans, dreams, etc. Although we may live far apart, we have a place in cyberspace where we can be together again.
