Introduction from the Webmaster
Having resided on or near military bases for most of my life, I enjoyed,
at an early age, studying military history. I have always had an interest in American history, particularly
the Civil War, and after serving in various positions in Federal agencies (including two branches of the military) I
retired, which allowed me the opportunity to devote more time studying and writing about the conflict that many refer to as
the American Civil War. (For usage of the website, please visit Introduction and How to Use this Website.)
My family and I (father
and brothers) have also amassed more than a century of combined military service, covering all five
components of the United States armed forces, from Air Force,
Army, Marines, Navy, to Coast Guard, and even a few Federal agencies.
Collecting from diaries to
artifacts of the era, I often return to my earlier Civil War writings and add rare photographs, quotes from diaries, eyewitness
accounts and other previously unpublished material, so you are encouraged to bookmark the site and visit often.
