It is SO GOOD to see you on the board again. I thought that you had moved along in life and left us behind. You have been missed!
I once checked out Eric Wittenburg's "Glory Enough for All..." from the library, and didn't have time to do anything but skim it. I regret that, and will go back and read it in detail now.
Wade Hampton is So Underestimated; I think, because he was a soldier first, and not a glory-seeker. He tried to enlist as a private, but was made a colonel. (somewhat like Sherman, whom went for a lower rank than he could have been given).
The stories about Wade III are every bit as exciting as those about Stuart and others, but Hamtpon preferred to do his duty than to go for the public-popularity-glory.
Anyway, I'm truly glad to hear your voice here again,
