A Scythe of Fire « Bull Runnings

[…] good stuff on First Bull Run and an officer’s roster for that battle I’ll use in my Confederate OOB, I found it disappointing on a few levels.  The book builds to its climax at Gettysburg, but then […]

Being from my home county, Col. S.B. Gibbons and Col. Thomas Jordan have been subjects of biographical sketches that I have written in the past. I’d be happy to share for inclusion in your blog if you are interested.

I plan to write sketches for all regimental commanders in a format similar to Heitman – very neutral and basic. However, comments to those sketches will be enabled for folks to provide additional, more detailed info, So yes, I’d love to have any additional info from you.

You’ve got a wonderful listing of Order of Battle information and I’d sure like to print it out. But I’m not good with computers. First, how do you print out the pages without having all the links appear? The links are not on the page to start with, so how do you click on them? Also, what are the tiny boxes with the arrows? What are they for? Lastly, I can’t figure out how to access the “how to use” information in the topmost ribbon. Sorry to be such a dummy, but I have no idea how to use your site. It really looks thorough though!

Ed, left click on any hyperlinked text to go where it leads. Hyper liked text appears in a slightly different tone, and highlights when you hover your cursor over it. Left clicking on any of the tabs in the header above should take you to the appropriate page. And copying Amy text to a notepad should convert it to plain text. The little arrows that appear in printed text are simply indentation markers.
