The Disney movie about Andrews' Raiders and the chase after The General was entitled "The Great Locomotive Chase." It was made in the mid-1950s and starred Fess Parker as Andrews, and Jeffrey Hunter as the Confederate who led the chase. This was the second movie based on the hijacking of The General...

I write this in behalf of all club newbies who are thinking right now: "Cheating? Like, by doing what? Jeez, I wish I knew specifically what they were talking about, so I knew what to watch out for." The only hints I picked up from the previous posts in this thread are that one form consists of repe...

If the book is half as well-written as your review, I shall enjoy it indeed. Thank you very much for that time and effort. I shall look for a copy.

I do not know of any ancestors from Canada. What part do you hide in? . . . Most of my ancestors I'm aware of came from the Ohio valley area. I'm told a grandfather was a railroad engineer for Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show in it's closing years. Sincerely, Lt Dwight McBride 1st Brigade ("The Regular...

I am but a few weeks out of West Point, with a question. I see many players who are searching for battles, and requesting that they be mirror matches . . . I know what mirror matches are, and that they can be either simultaneous or consecutive, but what I'd like to know is what the advantages or pre...

I have hundreds of volumes on the Civil War, by dozens of authors from the noted to the amateur . . . and my favorite has been and always will be Bruce Catton. For me at least, he has the turn of phrase, the mind's eye of the written word, that let's me see and feel, sometimes it seems even to <i>kn...

I'm not against the existence of the concept, because it is based in reality. However, the implementation of the concept--for the reasons many have listed below--is currently more unrealistic than the concept being represented. Something definitely needs to be adjusted, tweaked if you will. As far a...

An interesting question about who would have stepped in for Lee . . . Of course, prior to his wounding, it would have been Longstreet . . . Other than that, A.P.Hill was too sickly. Richard Ewell was known to be sinking into disfavor. So who? . . . Davis knew Lee favored his "mean old man" Early, an...
