We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

It does not get much better than knowing your grandkids might some day be standing in front of Fort DeRussy and seeing what it looked like on March 14, 1864. That is the kind of legacy the men and women of BGR can be proud of.
