Wikipedia says that Lorenzo Thomas was the guy who started the rumors that Sherman was insane and his testimony at the impeachment trial against Pres. Johnson was so biased that it led in good measure to the President's acquittal. Some guy.

The importance of the Navy is the Civil War has really been brought to the forefront by these articles.

To me, it was always something on the periphery of the War (like used at Henry/Donelson and Vicksburg), but now I see it as an integral and very important aspect of the entire war.

"Jackson’s men demonstrated near Harper’s Ferry."

So what were they demonstrating about? Don't ask, don't tell? The tea Party? The Occupy Movement?

Gen. Simms Sir:{salute}

I don't know if anybody has mentioned this lately, but I know I don't only speak for myself when I say how very much I appreciate your hard work, and enjoy the Day by Day.

Thank you sir!

Lt. Col. Deano Martin {salute}

Highest regards,

Gen Simms, great job in this, I very much enjoy it. I had a question though, with the great amount of good info in these posts, why not have every year on a Sticky? eg 1861, 62, 63, and 64. Crowd the forum board?

Thank you and I'm glad that you are enjoying it. I'm having a delightful time doing it. As for a sticky for each year, I thought that it was gracious of them to keep the current year near the top. At least I find fewer typos that way.
