Thanks for allowing me to join your forum. I was born a Yankee then lived most of my life, so far, in the South. A few years back I became very interested in the Civil War. I have read many books, visited some historic sites and even turned my Man Cave into a Civil War oriented room. If I was younger and more mobile, I would like to have joined you guys and girls at the battlefields for reenactment. Now, I enjoy reading forums and living where it all started, Charleston.
