My main interest is the American Civil War. I'm also generally interested in any topic related to military history, Pennsylvania, and science (especially outer space and weather).

I have been a Wikipedia user since February 12th, 2006. Here's my edit counter. I'll be using my "Info needed" page to request information I need for articles.

Projects[edit]

Here's a list of projects I'm working on right now:

  • Get all ACW articles into their proper category
  • Create an order of battle for every major battle of the ACW

If you have any suggestions for sources I could use, please leave them on my talk page. Thanks.
