First battlefield visit was Olustee in 1983. I had an uncle that had gotten me into reenacting and this was my dad’s first event. It was almost his last. Some drunk climbed up into a tree with his bagpipes about 1:30 am Sunday morning not far from our tent! Needless to say, my dad saw it was something interesting, and well, twenty-five years later, he commands one of the largest groups in the southeast. Me - I’m the author of eight books and dozens of articles.

Favorite battlefields - Antietam, Shiloh, Perryville. Least favorite - Gettysburg. I’ve been to most of the battlefields in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, and two (Lone Jack and Lexington) in Missouri.
