Ouch, but sometimes you just have to do what you have to do.

And if it wasn't the James, I'm sure that it would be something else-to me, I think that it is the thrill of the hunt.

Jon:  Looking forward to you moving down here.  We'll start equipping you with the accent once you are pernamnently here!   ;D  Some amazing examples of those shells.  Nice.  Looking forward to them coming back south.

Carl,  March 15 is my march south for my permanent encampment near Hiawassee. I will start practicing the accent as soon as people stop trying to switch me to "sweet" tea.(Yes, there is unsweet!) As I remember from history class, the last time Yankees brought a bunch of James (and other) shells south, you guys had a hissy fit.   ;)  Looking forward to the move!!  90% of the shells are crated now.

It is history that teaches us to hope.

Jon,

Come on down!  We'll show you there really isn't any tea worth drinking other than sweet tea.  The rest the cook just never finished.  During the big invasion we largely kept the James projectile out of Georgia.  They got inside the northern line to Chickamauga but nothing south of there other than a few big ones outside Savannah pounding Pulaski.  Maybe now that you are down here you can find one of those 6.4" James projectiles for Garret who started this thread.  :)   Find one for me too!
Best,
Carl

Sign me up for TWO 6.4 James please.   One bolt and one shell!
