Great Great Grandpa Henry Varley

My Uncle John on my mother's side of the family is doing a family history and one of my many family members is Great Great Grandpa Henry Varley. He is the gentleman on your right. I made this shrine to honor him and his love of country.  Although he was in the calvary during the Civil War, he was a little farther west from the fighting.  He was in the 17th Calvary in Shenadoah, Iowa and wore his uniform proud.    I do not know the name of his buddy, but I hope they were friends.
