We have been reading books about the American Revolution and Civil War. Hope in the future to continue to read and do research on some of the historic times that we are interested in. Here is where we are going to post information which includes book, web notes, lecture and research notes while participating at our local historical society. We hope they inform and educate others as much as it has helped us.

We hope to display a brief timeline of many of the different battles that took place during the English Civil War, French & American War, American Revolution, French Revolution, The Napoleonic War, The War of 1812,  American Civil War,  Mexican American War, World Wars and Vietnam War.  This is  in hopes to encourage people to learn more about the battles and participate in many of the living history and reenacting events held each year.  We hope to have the time lines completed by the beginning of the 2010 season.
