June 1997 Weekly Firesides

June 1, 1997

Hear Ye..... Hear Ye......

We had a great time Thursday night telling a tale of "Beginnings".  This Thursday night will be a continuation (chronologically, so to speak) of that.  It addressed the next overall year of the war and is called "Southern Successes".....  GFS KathyD is expected back from her travels and we shall both look forward to seeing you.

Request from a Fellow Researcher....

"I am writing a regimental history on a Tennessee unit.  I need maps in black-and-white for the battles and campaigns in which this unit participated.  In most cases, small adaptations of existing maps would be sufficient.

My question is: Who could draw such maps for me, and how much would they cost?
Thanks, Bruce Cole"

If you can help Bruce out, please email his a B COLE here on AOL.......   BCOLE@aol.com
