    Thanks very much for your kind words

    My motto is, I'm not quitting till John Griffiths (who first took the field in 1961) does!

    I do not know Mr. Braun, but when I saw this piece by him posted on Facebook, I had to share it -- I hope he does not mind, if he should see it. I have been saying what he says -- and now, to my...

    New Gettysburg game for the PC

    I don't know where to talk about Civil War games in this forum, though there are many, so perhaps the name of this section could have "Games" added to the title.

    Here's one I helped out with a...

    This is fun

    The Amish policemen comments reminded me of when my company journeyed to New York to march in that city's St. Patrick's Day parade in 2002. It was a very meaningful event, because of what had...

    Lest We Forget

    I woudl bet that most Americans have no idea as to the origins of this holiday, and even though it should be next week, since it has been rescheduled for commercial reasons, I am posting this now:

    Sorry for the tardy response

    You might check out, "Play for a Kingdom," by Thomas Dyja. I resisted reading this book for a long time, because I thought the premise was silly. But having said that, once I did get around to it, I...
