RE: [civilwarwest] Official Records (WAS Savas/Beatie Champion Hill?)
My wife has no understanding or liking of my obsession for buying and reading CW books. Although I must say that I did enjoy the Christmas present she bought me this year, the 3 volume set on The Vicksburg Campaign by Ed Bearss. Still she can’t understand why I need over 300 books on the CW. There is a saying that goes something like, “There is a fine line between a hobby and mental illness”. I think that I have probably crossed that line.

I know a guy who has the ORs on CD and in book form. He narrows his
searches using the CD, and then he heads to his bound volumes so as
not to strain the eyes. I may have to wait to get married until I've
bought the bound set (and the supplement from Broadfoot). I can't
imagine any significant other who wasn't a buff would understand or
even accept such a purchase...
