Civil War Buff Here

Hi everyone. My name is Brett Schulte and I'm a lifelong Civil War buff and fan of American and other military history. I am the editor and author of one of the oldest Civil War blogs on the web, TOCWOC - A Civil War Blog as well as the owner of The Siege of Petersburg Online, a site dedicated to the 1864 Civil War Siege of Petersburg.

I've been involved in a lot of Civil War forums over the years but I realized that often the same topics get rehashed over and over again. By joining here at Historum, I feel like I can help those who want to learn more about the Civil War while having others teach me about those areas of military history I am interested in but know little or nothing about like the American Revolution, War of 1812, Mexican-American War, Spanish-American War, Napoleonic Wars, WW2 carrier battles, the early American Navy, etc.

I look forward to meeting a lot of new people and learning about a wider range of history in the process.

Thanks! Did you use the same username there? I saw your username in one of the threads I posted in and it sounds vaguely familiar to me.
