Joe,

I assume you’re asking about the Don Troiani print New York’s Bravest, which I recently purchased. I wrote about it here. I checked the web, and found a few places that have it for sale:

I can’t vouch for any of the above. Good luck!

Just by chance I found your request for info on the Newman House on
Queen/Hassell Sts. Hillsborough, N. C. A deed dated 2/25/1790 was ithe name of Vincent Peter Williamson. It was briefly owned by Mary Burke Doherty(Mrs
Thomas Burke). John Henry Newman acquired the house in mid 1860s. In
1917 his son William Henry Newman acquired the property. Upon his death
his daughters Estelle , Josie and Gertrude acquired.However, there were two
other children, Fannie and William Lee which were not mentioned. It so
happens that William Lee Newman was my father and Fannie never married.
There were only two grandchildren in the last of the famalies one being
Wayne McDade (son of Josie) and me the daughter of (William Lee). I suppose
Wayne received all that was left of the estate/.

Hey Harry

I’ve been looking all over for information about the uniforms of the 18th virginia at manassas. I have an Osprey book of Virginia uniforms but it shows only parade dress of one particular company (Co. A, Danville Blues). Any idea where I could get information on battle dress of Co. A or any of the other companies of the 18th Virginia. I’m making a diorama of First Manassass and am trying to make it as accurate as possible. Thanks.

Since there was also a Danville Grays in the regiment (Company B), it might not be insane to consider the Blues wore some sort of blue uniform. But I have no idea. Most of what I find relates to the more famous Nottaway Grays (Co. G). But here’s a link to the index for some letters of a member of the company at Virginia tech:

Hope that helps some.

I am seeking a list of the Union soldiers who were involved in the 51 successful escapes from Richmond, Va prisons-especially 90 day volunteers, escaping 3 at a time in 1862, and any data on the units involved at the time Cub runn Bridges was brocked
