Well... the secret is to get an early jump on battlefield preservation. If you don't catch it early all is lost. Many of the battlefields of the Civil War are already gone. A few are in good shape. I'm sure you have the same thing over there but many people don't give a rat's ass for history. They'd rather bulldoze a battlefield to put up a few more houses or another shopping mall. Sad but true. It still happens here all the time.
Thanks for the kind comments on the blog. I am enjoying post stuff right now. The Civil War is in my blood ever since I was about...7 years old. That would be about 18,000 years ago. Getting ready for the 150th anniversary of the War and my game is getting me juiced! Normally I am juiced about it but now more so. As the Blues Brothers said, "I'm on a mission from God."
