    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:

    And as a minor P.S., since I did not see any discussion of this event before the weekend, I thought this year's Spotsylvania was ten times better than last year's Chancellorsville (run by the same...

  12. Question about Canister fired from 3-inch Ordnance Rifles

    I am hoping we have some N-SSA people here, or anybody, who can answer this question from a friend. He is referring to data he had seen, or heard about, regarding canister fire from those weapons in...

    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...

    Oh, I certainly agree. Ditto for last year's Cornfield. My regret is that -- save via YouTube -- spectators rarely get to see this sort of thing.

    Estimates of numbers

    I am not one of the organizers of this event, so hopefully you will see a more official estimate shortly. In the meantime, the last numbers I saw were a total of about 9,800 participants, including...
