LOL, thanks Steve - but I promise no dead horses in the Dean's office! :P

Thanks for the kind words, Mike - it's very much appreciated.  I think everything is set up for your review copy.  Hope you enjoy it - the book is over 450 pages long.  The first half is 10 chapters of scholarly treatment of the ride itself, and then the following 3 chapters deal with the resulting controversy as it's never been done before - one chapter dealing with the participants, one chapter dealing with early historians, and then one chapter about modern commentators.  The final chapter contains my and Eric's concluding comments and insights on the entire story.

The footnotes alone take up something like 40 pages, with a bibliography large enough to choke a goat.  Hopefully folks will see that we did our homework :shock:

Best,

J.D.
