*The Story of Bradley Eiler*
- As told by Jacqueline Norris

Bradley Eiler, 47, was diagnosed with stage 4 Metastatic Renal Clear Cell Carcinoma two years ago. "Currently, I have tumors in my right kidney, which is my only kidney, left lung and pancreas. The doctors have noted the cancer may be in my left hip, vertebrate, back of the skull and lymph nodes," Eiler said, adding his type of cancer is extremely resistant to traditional treatments like chemotherapy and radiation.

Eiler and his wife's two oldest children are biological, aged 24 and 26, and their five youngest children, ages 4 to 11, were adopted from the Foster Care system. In preparation for his treatment, the couple have taken steps to down size so Eiler's wife and children can have a better chance to survive with only one income. It has taken them two years to get to a point where they can sell their home in Tallahassee because Eiler has been in and out of the hospital.

He hasn't been able to secure life insurance because he was diagnosed with cancer when he was 25. At that time, the doctors were able to remove the cancer along with his left kidney where the cancer resided, but, like cancer often does, it surprised us when it came back after about 22 years.

Eiler’s family and friends have all pitched in to help take care of children, complete house projects so they can sell, and donated time and money in many other ways! "During my treatment my wife will not be employed and will have to transport me back and forth to the treatment center," Eiler said. "She will have to stay there with me as much as possible, especially for those important decisions I may not be able to make for myself." Eiler and his family are trying to arrange for treatments at Shand's Hospital in Gainesville, but for now are asking for prayers and any kind of support.

Lost For 150 Years - Important Civil War Jefferson Davis Capture Map Heads To Auction With Centurion

Historically important Jefferson Davis Civil War Pursuit & Capture Map has been lost for the past 150 years, only recently seeing the light of day when the Map was discovered hidden away, in among a private rare Civil War Book Collection. This linen Map of Georgia depicts the Disposition of the Cavalry Corps, M.D.M., Bvt. Maj. Gen. J. H. Wilson, Comdg. During the Pursuit and Capture of Jeff. Davis. May 1865.

The map is partially printed and partially hand drawn, showing the position and movements of the troops pursuing Davis. This Capture Map was to accompany General Wilson’s January 17th, 1867 Report to Congress, although the report notes the map as “Not Found”. This Jefferson Davis Capture Map is of great historical importance and a truly exciting find. It is consigned to sell with Centurion Auctions as part of the May 28th Civil War Era Militaria & Firearm Auction. Having been missing the last 150 years, this map is new to the market, and is expected to generate substantial interest within the Civil War, Rare Book, Map, and Document Collecting Communities.
