    Saw a review of your book on the Civil War librarian, and that you are from Trafford. I am the author of two books on the Civil War: Pittsburgh During the American Civil War; AND
    Our Honored Dead, Allegheny County During the American Civil War, and am presently completing a manuscript of Southwestern Pennsylvania and the Battle of Gettysburg, Human Interest Stories to be published June 2013. My publisher is Mechling, of Butler County. Although I have lived in Dormont in the South Hills for the past 38 years, I grew up in Pitcairn in the 1950s-60s. In my first book, I devote a chapter to the Proving Grounds and include where the present Moss-Side Bridge is was the Civil War Naval Proving Grounds. I have also taught World Geography at CCAC Allegheny Campus for the past 12 years. Glad to have found your site.

    Hey Kris,
    It was great seeing you over the 150th Anniversary of Chancellorsville. If you are wondering how we got the address of this site, we ended up driving down to Jackson’s Shrine and talked to some of the rangers there. They gave us the address to this site and as we were driving home I looked at the back of your “A Season of Slaughter” book and saw that you co-founded this site. Hope to maybe see you up at the P-T High School soon for another lecture. And maybe you could tell us a little more about our musket and sword.
    Keep in touch,
    John, Tami, and Evan Portman
