Patty I thought I was the only one that read with maps and dictionaries spread out all around me.  Only thing is I don't have a dining table so It is on the floor and on the seat of the couch where I read.  Notepad too to take notes .  When I am going to visit a historical site , I also have a notebook and post it's to take notes to use on the trip .  You should see my notebook from my trip last fall to South Carolina.  I also added notes as I visited sites.  inscriptions on graves, more information I found at one site that led to another etc.  My favorite is a poem on the entrance to Francis Marion's grave which has nothing to do with the Civil War . He is a partisan patriot from another war.  Yeah Swamp Fox.  I have always loved doing research but now that I am retired it is an absolute obsession !!!
