    Just read the recent newsletter. I want to give as may Kudos as possible to Ryan. He “had me at Hello” so to speak when I read about his recent decision to write a book on the Battle of Dranesville. He hit the nail right on the head and I could not have said it any better myself…. if you want to read the 400th book on the Battle of Gettysburg that’s your choice It is worth the energy. As he notes the most important battle to Frank English’s parents was not the Battle of Gettysburg but the Battle of Dranesville. Try telling a grieving mother that an engagement is not worth remembering because it was “too small and just a minor skirmish”

    Quite frankly I wish more historians would dig into these smaller engagements and detail them. I think it is also important to tie these small relatively obscure engagements into the larger strategic picture to understand why the small clash occurred in the first place.

    My hats off to him and giving him all the encouragement he needs.

    I have been taking Army units to Chickamauga / Chattanooga and Kennesaw Mountain for years. If Ryan still wants to go to those battlefields, please ask him to contact me elkennedy@lvnworth.com
