Author/Editor and 'Southern Gentleman'
"The Civil War is a tale of tremendous struggle, determination, and courage, of both its Northern and Southern protagonists. With mind and heart, for several years now, I have religiously followed the annals of both sides in the conflict. I have been there through the various advances and retreats of the Union and Confederate Armies, through many a pitched battle, through brilliant maneuvers and lost opportunities, through ground gained and lost, through acts of bravery, fortitude, and utter folly." - My Rush to War: Civil War Trails Beckon
Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. - Psalm 144:1
"It is well that war is so terrible, or we should get too fond of it." - Robert E. Lee
