    Hullo, this is Skarpskytten.

    I'm a swedish historian with an decade long on-and-off interest in the Civil War; I think it all started when I found a book on the battle of Pea Ridge in a bookstore in Irvine in 2006 during my as of yet only visit to the US.

    Come spring I will get my first Civil War piece published, an article on Pea Ridge published in a (swedish) magazine. Soon I will start to write a piece on Robert E Lee for the same publisher. I have a question about that, but will post in the appropriate part of the forum soon.

    Hello from Michigan. Sounds fun to write an article. I live walking distance from the Michigan History Museum, Michigan Arcieves, and Michigan Library. If you ever need information from them for an article let me know. Michigan did have some Sweeden working in our copper mines at the start of the Civil War. Some left the mines to become soldiers.

    Thank for all your kind words. This seems to be a nice place :smile:

    Thank you, very generous. I have no such plans right now, but you never know.

    About 3000 swedes fought in the war, most of them for the North. 13oo from just Illinois evidently.
