In my never ending search regarding my Byrd family, I came across a msg regarding two Civil War veterans/killed in action. This was a letter supporting the wives' rights to a pension. One is a Joseph R. Byrd 42 Regiment, Alabama. Supposedly kia at Chickamauga. Hope it helps. I am posting the URL.

Tonya,
I actually found it rather amusing. And to be 100% historically correct, they did use hot air ballons to oversee battles being fought, so I guess you could say there was somewhat of an "air-force" .
Thanks
