Enlistment Blog - Zoe Nguyen - Thomas Norton

Hello Fellow Regiments,
 My name is Thomas Norton. I can tell you one thing about myself, which is i love my wife choclate chip cookeys! They are the best thing in da world, and when i eat them, the choclate chips just melt in my mouth. It is so very delicious! I miss my lovely wife Harriet at home. I would love to come and see my very beautiful wife and her choclate chip cookys. I also need to say sory if I have a lot of words spell wrong, my education wasn't the very best back then. I am very exited to fight for the union, and it its my pleasure to. I promiss that I will always try my hardest like I do at home. I do expect a lot from you all. As I was saying about my favorite food to be choclate chip cookys, my least favorite is potatoes. If i had to eat a potato, it would bee the last thing i would eat! Few years back when I live in Ireland, there was a big breakout of potato blight. It scarred me for life, which was why I move to Springfield Illinois. I am proud man fighting for the Union. My favorite hobby is to write. My wife and I, Harriet Beecher Norton, share a love for that. We have been teaching our dearly six children to love it too! To bad none of them like it though. Don't be jealous, but my wife was the writer of that big hit, Uncle Tom Cabin. I am so proud of her. Don't you try to steal her from me, she is my precious little bean. I also love to fish. Everyday, i would fish, and fishing is my life, and what my family live on. Everyday at 6 am, i would go tot he lake, and get some salman to sale at the market, and for dinner. Every one loved the salman i catch and the fish eggs from salman. I chop off da meat purrfectly. So i do know about knifes a little bit. Shooting guns and stuff, not so much of an expert. Ever since i got enroll into the military i did practice using guns. I promiss miself, that us farmers and workers will help lead the union to victory. I hope we all will make a good team, and we will fight for what is the right.
