Greetings all. I have been studying the War for nearly 70 years, and still have more to learn, so I look forward to doing just that from this very knowledgeable group. Interests: early photography, personal accounts, the Sibley Campaign 1862, Sterling Price's Campaign in SW Missouri, and researching my great grandfather Pvt. William W. "Roving Bill" Aspinwall, Co. H, 47th Indiana, wounded Champion Hill 1863, Pvt. Hezekiah Purl captured Second Newtonia, died Rock Island Prison 1865. I am vehemently opposed to destroying American History by removing monuments due to being "offended." Look forward to exploring everything CWT has to offer. Cheers!
