I was born in 1966 and while growing up I really never got involved in anything historical.

I think my interest in history started when I joined the US Army in 1985.

My interest in the Civil War really didn't start until about 5 years ago. I work at a military base and I started seeing a lot of displays of Civil War era stuff so I started reading and ended up watching the Ken Burn's Civil War documentary and found that the stories in the story were fascinating, intriguing, and thought provoking.

The fact that an event that happened over 140+ years ago can still produce stories, news and information and lessons in life is just mind numbing.

I now host a Civil War website, have visited a few battlefields with plans to visit many more, and possibly would like to get involved in reenacting and volunteer work at Wilson's Creek NB (which is not too far from my home).
