Glad to see this forum is in good hands. Myself and a few others pushed to get this particular started, but I started in a new leadership position at work the same month this started. Never was able to do much with it. Hope you make this a successful venture!

Greetings! I’m Michael, the new host for the Regimental Forum. My passion for the War started in 1982. An uncle took me to a reenactment, bought me a jacket and hat, and I was allowed to carry the flag. I was ten and hooked on history. For the next two-plus decades, I was heavily involved in the reenacting world, eventually leading an infantry battalion. I don’t reenact much anymore, but we do spend many weekends volunteering as costumed interpreters at historic sites. My interest in the War years grew, and in 1995, I started working on my first book, a history of the 37th​ North Carolina Troops. While I have written on many different aspects of the War, regimentals remain my first love. Besides the history of the 37th​ NC, I have penned histories on the 58th​ North Carolina Troops, the 39th​ Battalion Virginia Cavalry, and the Branch-Lane brigade. My current project headed to the publishers is tentatively entitled Feeding the Army of Northern Virginia (Savas Beatie).

My interest in regiments runs deep, from how they worked (or didn’t work), officers, food/logistics, military discipline, chaplains, armament, etc. Besides the regiments listed above, I am also interested in the 37th​ Alabama, 8th​ Florida, 16th​ North Carolina, McClung’s Battery (CS), and the 3rd​ North Carolina Mounted Infantry, 13th​ Tennessee Cavalry, 10th​ Michigan Cavalry, 17th​ Michigan Infantry, and 40th​ United States Colored Troops (US).

I am a graduate of the University of Alabama, blog at Looking for the Confederate War, and call western North Carolina home. I’m looking forward to sharing and learning more in the Regimental Forum.
i am currently gathering any and all information on the 15th North Carolina Infantry Company A. My great grandfather’s unit. An extremely interesting endeavor.

Gathering information on an individual regiment is an interesting endeavor, and a lot of work. Little details can be hid just about any place.

The unit Keith Blaylock finally joined


May have been the unit the Fort Hamby ringleaders deserted?

Thank you for volunteering and sharing a little of your background. Please let me know if I can help with any of your projects. My book, General Robert E Lee’s Warhorses, has several chapters pertaining to the ANVs struggles to supply and maintain horses to the army. There just might be a few items of interest to you on logistics.
