I've unburied this old thread because there is a lengthy discussion about the Si Klegg books in the current issue of Blue Gray Magazine. My magazine arrived in the mail yesterday so copies should be readily available at parks and newsstands, if not now, then in the next few days.
On an unrelated note, I noticed a glossy, half page ad for the 150th Fredericksburg reenactment on the back inside cover of this same issue of Blue Gray. That ad must have been pricey. Considering the magazine was published a week after the event occurred, that ad was wasted money. The cost of the untimely ad is likely less than the cost of issuing a pair of dry wool socks to every modern day Si and Shorty who look a long walk on a short bridge.

"I take [this hobby] seriously just as any golfer, hunter, or fisherman would take their hobby seriously. You whine that "hard kewls" are what is wrong with this hobby, but I digress. In my opinion, the major defects in our little world consist primarily of the clowns and jackasses who don't take it seriously." - Mike Phineas, 2 August 2013.
