  • The new guy

    Hello,
    I'm another "retired guy" who happens to have a passion for history, American Civil War history to be more specific.
    I was a "Cold Warrior" with the US Army 1964 to 1967 & sent the next 33 years in the Agricultural & Construction equipment business.

    50+ years a horseman and a collector of horse cavalry equipment with a strong emphasis of CW items.

    I am a member of several related organizations, including: NRA, Heritage Arms Society, Minnesota Weapons Collectors Ass'n, Wood Lake Battlefield Preservation Ass'n and regularly attend CW roundtables & symposiums.

            Be very welcome here, I used to live next to your Burnsville in Bloomington Minn, many moons ago in a previous life.
            The Civil War, I used to dabble a bit in that some years ago, WW II is where I'm at now.
            Your not a Vikings fan by chance, are ya? That might just be my 2nd most interesting team, Packers would be the first.

            Have a good time on the forums! I know I am, give me a shout if you need something.

            Cheers
