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.

Just for the record, Gary Joiner and I did show up to see you folks on Saturday morning, but no one was there. In fact, there was very little sign that you had ever been there - it had all been washed away. Had I not searched the trash can and found a receipt for cartridges for someone in the UK, I wouldn't have known you'd ever been there.
In the winter of 1862-63, Walker's Texas Division camped up around Camp Nelson, Arkansas. The weather was cold and rainy, like it was at Kisatchie this last week, except worse. The Texans died like flies. You may not have been able to fully appreciate it last week, but you all got a true Civil War experience like very few people are ever likely to have.
