My Civil War Home’s goal is to provide information, education and discussion on the American Civil War. While there is an initial focus on the events that occurred in Missouri and Kansas, all facets of the war will be presented. The goal is to present this information in a non-biased manner, appreciating that both North and South were equally to blame for this turning point in our nations history.

As of right now, all the posts are written by me unless otherwise noted, and most of the information presented, the photo gallery, etc. is also done by yours truly. Hopefully in the future other writers will submit articles to the site as well.

So to get and idea of who is presenting the information, I’ll give you a little information about myself. I am a US Army veteran and have a BA in History from Columbia College. I am the founder and former president of the South Central Missouri Civil War Round Table located in the Waynesville/Rolla area of Missouri. I have held positions of Sr. Vice Commander , Graves Registration Officer, Signals Officer and Secretary for Old Abe Camp #16 and Sigel Camp #614, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War.

I have a strong interest in military history, specifically, the American Civil War, American history, ancient/medieval history, European history  and Christian history. Genealogical and Cemetery research are also other areas I am fascinated by and have begun projects in both not only within my own family, but for others as well.

I am happily married , have three outstanding kids, enjoy playing music and riding my motorcycle. I am a true Midwesterner… I am originally from Illinois, spent 20 years in Missouri and currently live in Topeka, Kansas.
