I've found proof-positive that time travel is not only possible, but it has happened.

Here's a page listing the 4th regiment US infantry during the American Civil War. Partway down, we see the entry "Alden Bates , Company B,H - Private".

So not only is time travel possible, but sometime in the future, I will go back in time and fight in the American civil war.

Shame it doesn't mention what happens to me.

Mental note 1: Pack uzi. Heck, pack two

Mental note 2: why the heck do I end up fighting in the American civil war

Mental note 3: Yaaaaay, new Massive Attack album in February

Mental note 4: buy more magnets for mental fridge

Mental note 5: Go to bed. Now.

Mental note 6: Now, damn you.

Well I can tell you where you went ans that it looks like you lived. I can't tell if you stayed however =)

BATES, Alden Private Elgin Apr 25, 1861 Mustered out July 25, 1861
Company "A" 7th Illinois Infantry (Three Month Service) 7th Infantry Regiment, Elgin, Kane County, Illinois

I haven't found your re-enlistment nor your grave.. so I'm assuming you left and came home. =) However one of your brothers (or someone) goes and masquerades as.. Bates, William Company "K" 8th Illinois Cavalry ;)

Now what is so very odd is... that's the town/city where I was born (much later of course) AND I grew up in the towns just north of there. So what were you doing? ;)

So I get to be in company A as well as B and H? I sure do get around. :)

Maybe I was making sure your great great grandparents meet or something. :)
