41580Re: [civilwarwest] Happy Anniversary, Dick
- Aug 7, 2006Thank you very much Bill. Those are just wonderful comments and ones that I
would be challenged to live up to. In case some of the folks might be
wondering about the "anniversary", it was on this date in 1999 that the CWWT
was first formed. I thought that I would be lucky to get at most 30
members. I only had less than a dozen that were firmly committed when I
first set up the group. Lordy, was I wrong on that beauty. Although we
lost a few members on that last "dust up" we still have 583 and going
strong. Thanks to you all. You are just a fine bunch of folks. Sometime
in the future, we might want to think about having a CWWT Muster. We have a
lot of folks in here that I am sure could enlighten us on many a battlefield
if we all wanted to get together. Just something to think about for future
I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Dick (a.k.a. Shotgun)
