Welcome to the History Section of our site!
What we have tried to provide here is material that will better enable you to understand and put into proper context the material in other areas. Plus a wee bit of culture as well...
Within the various sections available here you will be able to follow a particular regiment through the war; read details about some of their battles, small and large; see where they actually fought and served; learn about some of their leaders; and enjoy some of their pastimes with the theater, music and poetry of the day.
All of these sections will be added to in the future, as time and materials permit. As with all research, we learn as we go, discovering new and fascinating details of the bitter conflict that shaped America and the World.
Please stop by in the months ahead and perhaps learn something new with us!
