    AMU, American Military University

    hello, i have seen advertisements on many Civil War magazines for AMU would like to study, first would want to hear if others have knowledge first hand or not of this online organization. It's a big investment and obviously I need some feedback from independent sources. Anybody

    Peter Cozzen's Article re Grant & Rawlins

    WHen I first got the magazine I emailed the editor and somewhat berated him for perpetuating the often disputed fact of Grant's over imbibing. He was very kind in response. It was too long ago and not saved email to recall much.........Not only does history media as in this headline, seem to take pleasure in this over reaching myth, it feeds the general publics view of Grant. Most of the time this specific issue is the general publics ONLY view of the man who saved the nation from splitting into two(not a bad idea considering the Feds growth&power)........I could go on and on and may after I read the article again, Mike PS I don't dispute Grant's drinking it sure NEVER seemed to get in the way of vital decisions or actions. Often a drunks actions will be erratic, unpredictable etc. none of that in Grant's life

    Shiloh and Corinth on Mississippi Public Broadcating

    thank you for this love to dine at Ft Vancouver on Officers Row The Grant House not only has yummy food, the hosts will take one on a tour and have Grant's desk he used during his time in the territory. It's the original house they also can show and explain the remodeling that has occurred.

    The park's image

    WOW I like Sharon from Idaho am envious of those who can spend time like CD is encouraging on These Hallow Grounds of Shiloh, and other historically significant spots in The USA(the fraction that remain). April 27 is Ulysses S Grant's Birthday G-D Bless America Mike

    Hi Mona logistics; my event in Nashville on Sunday ends 11am, seems to me drive to Shiloh 3 hours? Arrive 2pm ish? Is that worth your time to tour? I would love to see Cloud field, the Indian mounds and Dill Branch ravine...while this would be sufficient and depending on time and nightfall I would also like to retrace Lew Wallace's misdirected march. If it makes sense to communicate directly here's my cell phone 503-784-1101 or I would call you on my dime if you desire I called and ordered the Blue and Gray publication the challenge will be is it going to arrive here in time, ordered Monday Dec 29th Mike
