    One of the books I helped Write, Men from 23 Countries and 28 States, it includes 9 Canadians and the only Canadian Confederate Buried in Arlington.
    I used to be nick named Taz. This was a private printing of 1000 copies, I have number 1 and number 13.
    I have only seen one copy for sale in the past few years, asking price is $300, when I told them I helped write it and I had a credit, the book store asked me to sign it...Nah!!!

    I collected CW items and uniforms and set up correct mannequin displays years back but after years of just collecting CW items I finally moved on to the Indian war period, then Span Am war and on up to WWII. I sold off the misc CW collectables I had accumulated as I moved on to the IW period but kept the full mannequin displays and also the mannequin displays for each other period that I had carefully assembled. All of which I still have today all stuffed in one small extra bedroom. It was a challenge to find and built a mannequin with all the correct and original period uniforms and equipment and once complete it had to remain complete as I just couldn't sell it off piece by piece after all that work that was done to complete it.
    If you click on this site below you'll see my US collection I put had together and still have. Here's a sample of a couple of displays, Ray
