Children of Civil War Vets Still Living Today-“My father fought in the Civil War.” It’s a line that makes people’s faces squinch. 
Juanita Tudor Lowrey is pictured with a war portrait of her father Hugh Tudor, November 27, 2012, in Kearney, Missouri. Her father was 40 years older than her mother.
From her Fathers Diary: “This morning Genl. Sherman and his the 14th Corps came in. … We fell in and saluted him respectfully. It is very windy. We drawed rations. The(y) fired 15 guns to salute Sherman.”
Tallying current lists, the total of living children of civil war vets is about 60. And even figuring that all the real sons and daughters haven’t been identified, the number of Civil War children is likely less than 100, says Ben Sewell of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
Sarah Anderson of the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War knows of 10 surviving Union vet daughters. “There’s no one closer to the Civil War. The way I look at it, they’re a national treasure.”
