    I received two travelling inkwells for Christmas two years ago, and I am nothing but happy with both of them. My wife did the ordering and was extremely pleased with the level of customer service....

    Except a Major's star was typically five pointed, these are six. From the shirt collar I'm inclined to think that it's prewar too.

    Thant's outstanding! Now you've got a whole new regiment to study up on: the 7th WV. You know, of course, that you now owe Lorenz a bottle (or six) of his favorite adult beverage! :)

    Define crowdsourcing: getting your information from the crowd. Some folks really know what they're talking about, others are so far off as to not be in the same area code. This technique is often...

    Let me reiterate that you don't need to buy Ancestry yourself. You can go to a library or historical/genealogical society. Lorenz is willing to help, but it's been my experience (I'm a curator) that...

    If you know anything else like the names of his parents, siblings, or children you might check out the National Archives for census records. This might give you a better date of his birth, residence,...

    I'm 6'1" and it works for me. If there are good trees nearby you can eschew the poles too. When you set up though, remember how the overlap of the two halves sit in relation to each other--you want...

    Sometimes if you order several items at once, then it might take longer for you to get your order. They might have items A, B, and C in stock but need to wait to receive D before they ship the whole...

    I'm not trying to be a jerk, just give you your first lesson: "Calvary" is a hill. "Cavalry" is a guy on a horse.

    Whereabouts in Colorado are you? I'm pretty certain that there are groups in...

    I agree that our "chain-of-command" has no real teeth. But even so, we can still bring things like this up. It might not help with the immediate problem, but possibly a raised awareness might...

    I'm thinking of something I learned in the modern Army: "The six Ps". Most of you know it.

    Several excellent points have been touched upon: the idea of "units" (no matter what you call them) that...

    Okay, so I'm a man and we all know that men are not wired to just listening, but trying to fix things. What can we do to fix this?

    Rifle Barrel Construction?

    This past weekend at Perryville I had a spectator ask me how CW rifle barrels were manufactured. He than asked a small follow-up (was it done this way or that) but I honestly can't remember the exact...

    Gents, this is a fine frock. A similarly sized version at some of the big online sutlers is nearly $275, and I guarantee that this coat is of a much better quality in both materials and workmanship.

    The Red Badge of Courage. The narrative is superb and Crane taps into the truth of human emotion without being shackled to facts. There's a reason it's still required reading in so many classrooms.
