I know this is several years old, but are these fellows still around? I had one of their stadia, but lost it, and am interested in another. Would like a current contact.
Fire ants aren't period. Ignore them.
Seriously, you can't ignore them, at all. I wish we could eradicate them completely. Best option I've found is to move.
I have a Nook, and look through the B & N website for titles. I'll confess, I'm cheap, and I try to find stuff in the public domain that's free. I've noticed, though, that some sources are...
Looks like the feller with the high boots has mounted trousers on, too.
Looks like he's got a sling on his weapon, and he's wearing mounted trousers. Also, looks like someone dropped a "pringle" in the foreground.
I did run across this:
I'd read it long ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it again.
I think this is what you're...
Some years ago, I ran across a reference to the beef herd that accompanied the Army of the Potomac, as a mobile supply of fresh beef. I can't find it again, and wondered if anyone here might have...
Buy one of each, maybe they'll reproduce. Oh wait, then you'd have a reproduction that might need de-farbing. Is that authentic?
Back pockets are lousy places to put things you might need, or might not want to lose, while on horseback.
Out of curiosity, what are the dimensional differences between the Maynard tapes and modern "cap gun" paper tape caps? I'd guess the modern ones are a bit wider, but I can see that the spacing might...
Michael, can you post a link to this report, please? Sounds like good information to have. Thanks,
Curt, I've always like that one, too. Whoever came up with that one epitomizes that famous quote by Roger Rabbit, "What a maroon".
I've had people tell me also the short sword was for cutting the...
It may be the usual line of speculation, but I think it's ridiculous to suppose the type of pistol was named for a potential target. A 'Horse Pistol' is for shooting horses? That's like saying a Boy...
I'm inclined to think that the term "horse pistol" likely came from the use by "Horse", referring to mounted troops. Also, in developing a weapon that likely would be used against mounted troops, why...
Haven't heard they closed, and only found 2 complaints on the BBB website. The BBB website doesn't say if they are still open or not. However, the transactions I've had with them (admittedly a little...
This also calls to mind a question I've had about boots with one-piece fronts vs two-piece fronts. Did the one-piece tend to be issue and two-piece private purchase? Or was it again simply a matter...
By the way, I'd guess you aren't using valise saddles on the off side. Man, that would be uncomfortable.
Can't ask for a better explanation or reason than that. Having worked with Mounted Artillery off and on for several years, I can certainly appreciate the expense and time involved.
Edifying, as always, and as expected. Can't quite figure out why the artillery 1/2 section has riders mounted on the off side horses.
I'd like to see pictures from this year's parade. Anyone have any to share?
I generally stop by at least once a day, but I don't always log in. Often I scan the headlines, and see if there is an update to a topic I'm following. If there is, and I want to add to the...
How about "Buck Buck", as described by Bill Cosby? I wish I could find it again, but I once saw a news reel clip from WW2 of sailors playing it on shipboard, and it's (forgive me for referencing...
