A really great article on the preservation of the Mill Springs battlefield site in southern Kentucky.  I need to go down and see this battlefield.

I have an interest in ships of the civil war.  The Stonewall was one of the more interesting looking in my opinion.  Some of the details on the interesting story of the ship are here.

There may now be an answer to why the H.L. Hunley sank.  Going to see this is on my bucket list.

I really like the history of the American Civil War.  Here is a bit of history uncovered that gives insight into the construction of a corduroy road.  Useful info for a figure or diorama modeler.

I’ve always been interested in this subject.  Came across this page with some preserved remains of flags from Sharpsburg.

One of my great-grandfathers.

He served in the 53rd Indiana Inf. Reg. which fought in most of the major western campaigns.

While I think the general rule of not revisiting old cases to retroactively award the MoH is a good idea, I do think that this one is well deserved.
