This is Just Weird

Page 30 of Mark Hughes’s The New Civil War Handbook juxtaposes two images of soldiers who died in the war.  The first photo is of North Carolina volunteer Jim Costner:


The second photo is John Kinsella of the 7th CT:


The reason this is freaky?  This guy:


That’s Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams.  At the end of the film, Costner’s character plays catch with his father.  Costner’s character’s name is Ray Kinsella.  The father’s?  John.

Check out Mark’s website here.  Thanks for the photos of the soldiers, Mark.

That is weird. I have never seen Field of Dreams. I’ll have to rent a copy and watch it.
