Well, I just found out that Ken Knopp has a new book out, as well as a nifty website with all kinds of information and pictures relating to Confederate Horse Equipment.
Ken is one of the fellows I used to ride with several years ago (7th Ill.). I haven't talked to him since Selma in '92. I wish I'd stayed in touch with all those guys, but right about that time was when I started going to college full time and quit going anywhere.
I wish I'd been able to do some illustrations for some of these books that all these guys seem to be writing these days. One of these days I will get arounding to upgrading and maybe I'll post some drawings from the days when I wielded a quill instead of a mouse.
