Current areas of content work. My current areas of content contribution are mainly the Appomattox Campaign and the related battle articles, American Revolutionary War spies, including Culper Ring additions, and American Civil War railroads. I have made some additions to the Appomattox Campaign article and have substantially expanded the first three articles listed. I have done some further research and writing done for the following battle articles and additions to the Appomattox Campaign article. I have resumed research and writing on the Appomattox Campaign and the related battle articles. While this has taken somewhat longer than I had hoped, I plan to complete the project before the anniversary dates of the battles at the latest. I have pushed this back again, further than I had hoped, because I have spent four days in a hospital for tests and also have to attend to other real life matters. My next article expansion about the Battle of Five Forks is almost ready, and only three of the remaining articles or summaries require considerable research and writing. Still, it will now be difficult to meet the time frame and I may do some revisions without quite finishing. I am disappointed that I have not proceeded a little more quickly but sometimes real life intervenes to slow progress. Other areas mentioned in my "to do" list below currently have a lower priority for me but I do intend to get to them later in the year. I am reducing my recent changes/vandalism reviews as I return to more content creation, editing and related areas such as DYK.

Content and organization of page; lists. I keep track of the articles I have started or substantially contributed to and my other work on the project on this page, mainly for my own reference and information. I occasionally have had some interests in lists. Seven of the nine articles on which I have the most edits are lists: List of American Civil War generals (Confederate), List of members of the Virginia House of Burgesses, Timeline of events leading to the American Civil War, Bibliography of the American Revolutionary War, List of American Civil War brevet generals (Union), List of American Civil War generals and Bibliography of the American Civil War. (I realize that the number of edits does not always correlate with the most substantial contributions.) I started two of those lists and another list article, List of American Civil War generals (Acting Confederate). I also have created 105 other articles (only a few stubs) and have made some significant contributions to many others articles, as listed in the section on this topic below. I once bought a book entitled: The Book of Lists by David Wallechinsky, Irving Wallace and Amy Wallace; New York: Morrow, 1977: ISBN 978-0-688-03183-1 (which became a #1 bestseller). This may help explain why I have the "statistical reasons" user box below and the content and general organization of this page.

Formatting of this page. I have noticed that the formatting of the page, and the user boxes in particular, may not be uniform or orderly if viewed on a wide screen or with a larger than normal font or both. Perhaps there is a way to keep the formatting as it was when the page was prepared regardless of the width of the screen or the font or both, but as long as this message is on the page, I don't know what that might be. On the other hand, the small font size in most of the user boxes is enlarged when viewed with the larger screen or font.
