Welcome Vick, sure, it's my kind of thing too. Me being a Brit we've also had a great amount of war's including civil war. Not many ppl can name an English civil war battle/conflict though, myself included! :( (well, I could google of course!)

Makes me just a little homesick. I grew up in Decatur. I remember being taken to see the Cyclorama as a child.
