    It's frustrating in the field when officers command poorly. It's enjoyable when competent officers, sometimes true leaders, command well. I'm certain that there were both good and bad officers then...

    From my perspective, as a Southerner descended from a great many Southerners, fighting Confederate is akin to wearing the home team's colors. Who wants to be that guy in a Red Sox jersey in the...

    period language - videt

    Anyone know more about the term 'videt' and its usage? In reading Co Aytch, the term is used frequently. Sometimes it seems interchangeable with 'picket' and sometimes it seems to represent a...

    Hmm, I watched on the Internet and there was more footage of the Confederates marching than the Federals, but no real commentary on either. I recall that they pointed out Lincoln, and spoke a little...

    Any interest at $525?

    Interesting story. Did you notice the Chilean Naval Jack on that Wikipedia page? Anyone know the story of that flag, specifically if there's a strong connection to the Bonnie Blue?
