civilwarhome.com is back!
- I am very sorry to have been off the net as long as I was ( I didn't realize that as many people in this group use the site as they do), but as I explained before it was simply a matter of economics with me. I decided to put it back up a little early so the last minute students could use it this weekend.By the way, I put up a new section during my "downtime" that some might be interested in. While rummaging through the ORs and other Civil War era documents I have found a lot of words that I really didn't know what they meant. For instance, "abatis, barbette, fascine, etc." Since my military career had more to do with the "wild blue yonder" than things infantry, I had to look each of these beauties up. I have to believe that some of the folks that research the Civil War might just be in the same boat I was so I made a new area to the site. I will be adding to it as I stumble on words that I really don't know what they mean. Here's the link:If any of you folks have found words that you think might belong on the list, send them over (private email) with the definition and I will add them.Now back to your regular programming.I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Dick (a.k.a. Shotgun)
