    I've recently been increasing my Civil War book reads and was very pleased when I found this talk forum. I grew up in Southeastern PA (York) about 25 miles from Gettysburg. So I have visited the battlefield a number of times throughout my childhood and during visitations with relatives. Also, my Dad was a Civil War buff starting in the 1960's. The family once took a summer vacation where we visited most of the battlefield sites in the Virginia theater.

    I spent a few days reading various forums before I joined and I was amazed at how much I didn't know about the ACW. Like many, or most, of those interested in the ACW, I have always been fascinated by Civil War photography. The images can be spellbinding. The ACW photography forum certainly caught my attention. And because of my upbringing and familiarity with the Gettysburg area, that battle's forum is certainly of interest. Also, for some reason that I can't explain, I seem to be fascinated by ACW artillery. So there ought to be plenty to keep up the interest.

    I truly look forward to visiting the site and participating in forum discussions.
    Thanks
