               Well said Tom!  And it is so true.... This is one of the best & one of my most favorite history groups! We are so lucky to have the people, historians, and writers that we have. This group never stops, and I never cease to learn from it!  In fact this is the only Civil War "group" I attend to nowadays... Quite frankly.. IMHO, I don't need another, I can always get my answers here.
             There have been times that I've gotten perterbed, but I'm sure I've peterbed others as well.... LOL...But I just have too much respect for you guys that have been at this for 10, 20, 30 years now. One just cannot top such knowledge!  I hope that someday, I too will be so learned!
            And yepper Tom... Ya hit the nail on the head!   We may be "gray", "blue", or "in-between"....   But like "Easy Company", we are a "band of brothers"...and sisters! (Don't want to forget the ladies...lol)
            Much Respect To You All!
             Capt. McCracken.........

      In this group we support and help one another. We may disagree on events in the Civil War but people usually pitch in to help each other out. Ask members for assistance any time and I think, no, I know, you will get positive responses.

      I did reply to the guy last night off list, must have thought his email address wouldn`t show up in his message I guess. Put it this way, I was not very polite in the email I sent to him. You call me an Idiot for asking for a few simple photos of where 2 of my ancestors where killed since I am unable to make a trip down there?? Buddy, I hope you never need a favor from anyone!!!!
      If anyone would like to share any information on the 16th Alabama Infantry, 36 Virginia Infantry and the 17th Virginia Cavalry, contact me anytime. I would be more than happy to discuss them with you.

      I agree with Steve and Hank here.
      There was nothing wrong with the request and such requests are consistent with past such discussions in our group. I for one have received a wide variety of advice and assistance from group members here and hope for more. Also, I have been asked things specifically and have felt honored for the requests. This is one of cool things about this fine group.  If I can ever help I would be honored by the request and I think most others here feel the same way.
      When did kindness and maturity become wrong? Not here. Not now. Not ever.

                 Neither do I Hank.... I wonder why the group must hear/read such rudeness. I thought it was a decent question myself... And thought if everybody got together, we could have a pretty darn good "photo album" of all battlefields.
             IMHO..... Either lack of maturity...Or excess of some "libation".. ..
               Take care...
