What a unique and inovative idea to create a cyber Western Civil War round
table!!! pull up a Box o'Hardtackl and swig yer grog lads. Tis the what
we(the Western Theatre buffs)have fumed,pined,and gnashed our teeth for....
a chance to state our case for the Western Theatre's contribution to the
Civil War The Western Theatre is overlooked, Hardly mentioned much less
written on by the big-wig "historians" everybody is so goo-goo-gaa-gaa over
the eastern campaigns not trying to take away from the sacrifice made..But,
let us also look at Island number 10,Nashville,Franklin,Memphis,Forts Henry
and Donalson.Major River flotilla battles between the River Defense
Force(reb)and the Western Gunboat Flotilla(union) These took many
lives,vessels and private property look at the almost greek tradgedy- like
battle of Shiloh the sweeping epic- like siege of Vicksburg! Shotgun, Xan
and Ks have taken the earth-works with this CWWT site! We must take
advantage of this oppertunity to show the site management that this site is
open and SUPPORTED BY ALL OF US to bring to light the Western efforts of
our boys in blue and butternut..............
