It's been a while...

It has been some time since I posted here. I've been busy editing my book that I have been writing for the past two years. It's called "An Amateurs Look at the American Civil War." Its a collection of facts, events, and any other bits of information that I have assembled about the Civil War. It is currently at 850 pages of information and i have arranged it as such:

Civil War Calendar: Events arranged by month, by day, and then by year. Everything from major battles, minor skirmishes, political happenings, and newspaper headlines. Sprinkled throughout are quotes, some familiar, some not.

Military Life: A collection of military information to include weapons, how to load and fire said weapons, uniforms, and equipment, rations, regulations, and a cookbook.

Interesting Facts: This area explores the issues, personalities, and strange facts that came out of the war. Included are essays on African-Americans, women, the Irish, other foreigners in the two armies, Reconstruction, and ending with a roll call of the occupations of those who survived as well as those who fell.

Editing is going on at this time with the possibility of publishing this fall, most likely as an e-book.
