Easthampton, huh? Ever gotten done to the Springfield Armory? Right about now it's the only museum I can think of that's in any way Civil War related that's near you.

My son and I went there some years ago. Very impressive display of civil war muskets.

I think the one that was struck by lightning was the most interesting.

I agree. I never saw anything like it. The rows and rows of muskets were awesome.

Welcome grangran and Cwnut 63!

CW Nut - the Lincoln Home in VT is worth a trip and I agree the armory is impressive.

Grangan - I to like first person accoounts. Historians interpet these, meaning that they use thier biases to screen relevant and irrelvant info. When I read material first hand I only have to worry about my own biases.

Grangran, try Patricia B. Mitchell's Civil War cookbook samplers. Yes, they are cookbooks (and not always period recipes), but she does include diary entries from soldier and civilians in them so they are a little more than simple cookbooks.
