Story
Introduction
I grew up in small-town southern Illinois about half an hour away from St. Louis.  My major interests are the American Civil War, the St. Louis Cardinals and Blues, Notre Dame Fighting Irish football, Illinois Fighting Illini basketball, college basketball and baseball in general, horror films and stories, computers and web design, and military history of any kind.  I am the founder of TOCWOC - A Civil War Blog, which is linked to in this profile.  Come visit the blog to read about the latest Civil War books, Civil War magazines, Civil War games, and many other Civil War related material.  I am the owner/editor of The Siege of Petersburg Online, a Civil War web site focusing on all things pertaining to the 1864-1865 Siege of Petersburg and Richmond.
