Salutations Good People!
As a newbie to this hobby I have been (and still am)
receiving a lot of advice and information. Thanks to
all of you!
However, Don Kehoe of the 1st US Inf. has given me a
piece of advice I feel should be passed on. He
suggested that, if possible, I get a copy of Military
Collector & Historian Vol. 50 #1 & #2 - The War of
1812 Special Issues. I have found both of these and
they are GREAT! I Highly recommend them for the
tender-foot and the veteran.
If interested they can be purchased through The
Company of Military Historians, Headquarters, North
Main Street, Westbrook, CT. 06498, Phone:
To join the company you will need to fill out an
application and pay $40.00 in dues. However, they
will let you purchase back issues if you are not a
member. This is the option I chose. I was charged
$7.13 per issue. They do not take credit cards.
If you would like, it is possible to look at a summery
of each issue on the net. All you need to do (in
Yahoo anyway) is type in "Military Collector &
Historian". The site will give a list of the back
issues available and a breakdown of each. If you have
trouble let me know.
On a side note - Mr. Kehoe is perhaps one of the most
patient, tolerable, and informative people out there.
He has been a wealth of information to me in helping
get started in this fascinating hobby.
