This is a list of candidate matches or synonyms or analogies of the 9 battle sites of "Arthur".
Necessary background is that our discovery was that the 9 battle sites of Arthur of the Historia Britonum of Nennius match the 8 of the 9 forts of the Saxon Shore of the Notita Dignitatum from Yarmouth to Portchester/Portsmouth. We found that other "Welsh" lists also seem to match especially the 9 Pa Gur battle sites. This list of synonyms includes seeming matches from other...

John Gibbon and Strategy

Posted November 5th, 2016 at 08:57 PM by Viperlord (Viperlord's History Blog)

John Gibbon, a North Carolinian West Pointer who remained loyal to the Union and very ably led troops throughout the war, is one of my favorite figures of the American Civil War. He is not someone I ever talk about in relation to strategy, because he spent most of the war as a division commander, briefly attaining corps command at the end, and early on of course, forging and leading the famed Iron Brigade. Consequently, I was pleased to come across a campaign plan proposed by none other than John...

appealing unfair "suspension"

Posted October 28th, 2016 at 03:45 PM by gold heart

I am not a fool, I know that i can not post in the forum without some people being able to tell from my style and ideas etc (and from my i.p. address) that i am the same person.

Still Learning

Partly out of idle curiosity, partly because it might inform my next major post on Ulysses S. Grant when that happens, I was going through the Official Records. Particularly, I was going through correspondence in early 1864, curious to see some of the process of Grant planning and evolving his 1864 strategy. In my recent post on Grant of course, I consequently talked about Grant's three pronged-attack in Virginia, featuring George Meade, Benjamin Butler, and Franz Sigel as the principal commanders,...

If It Takes All Summer: The Strategy of Ulysses S. Grant in 1864

As 1864 dawned, the Civil War seemed to still very much hang in the balance. Despite Ulysses S. Grant's decisive victory at Chattanooga, a Confederate army still guarded Northern Georgia, Kirby Smith's virtually independent Confederate department of the Trans-Mississippi still stood, and most importantly of all, Virginia, the heart of the Confederacy, still held firm against the Union's Army of the Potomac. Virginia had proved to be a vexing problem for Union generals, planners,...
