Davis & Family Update

 NEW UPDATE for Sunday Night 9/27

Blessed are these days!!!

Greetings and Blessing to all!  It's been WAY TOO LONG for me NOT updating y'all...I've had so many e-mail, Facebook, or call regarding how Davis and myself and family are doing.  And I am MOST HAPPY to sign the PRAISES of God and His Rich Blessings that all is GOOD!  My post-hernia operation pain was about to send me NUTS, but at the post-7 week mark, my doc prescribed a new medication (not a narcotic-based "pain-killer" but one that acts as a "pain inhibitor") and I prayed that--being past the "magical" post-7 week point I be FREE and ABLE to WORK, EXERCISE, and be FULLY-FUNCTIONAL again.  And indeed, I went straight away to playing tennis, jogging DAILY, and doing my old free-weight workouts of old!  PRAISE GOD for the end of such horrific pain, and the psychological side-effects of being so depressed unable to WALK or CLIMB STAIRS or WORK for my family.  And the medication is one Davis took a while back, trying to alleviate his chronic post-cancer treatment pains.  But I'm "back in the [Confederate] SADDLE AGAIN!"

THANK YOU ALL your faithful prayers over the years have been such an infinite blessing to us, for which we pray for ALL who have done so, and ALL who seek Him and to serve His Will.

Davis...he's as happy as any "normal" boy, despite all hi problems, issues, and disabilities.  He's LOVING his return to school, is in the 5th Grade, doing very well (all things considered), and we are going to begin a new technically "chemo" pill--but for it's proven side-effects through studies that if taken in small doses, has allowed GREAT IMPROVEMENT in decreasing/eliminating pains, and loosening joints, muscles, and tendons.  PLEASE PRAY that HE BE FINALLY HEALED from his debilitating side-effects. 

As always, my precious "daddy's princess", Alexandra is now 6 years old, back in school (1st grade) and GROWING WAY TOO FAST for Daddy! 

I am EXCEEDINGLY BLESSED...far more than I deserve...and I praise and thank God continually for His Mercy of Kindness and Love.

ANY PRAYERS that you would so kindly and selflessly give on our behalf, it it appreciated and returned beyond measure of our gratitude.

I most humbly THANK YOU and BLESS YOU ALL !!!

May you ALL be blessed 10-Fold in Return

The Hill Of Death...

View of the Old Jackson Road, looking northward, at what is known as the "Crossroads"

at the Battle Of Champion Hill, Mississippi, fought May 16, 1863.  At this spot, the Upper and Middle

Jackson Roads intersect, and was the strategic objective for both armies  

during the battle. General Grant's and General Pemberton's forces fought over this ground,

 changing hands three times, until General Pemberton ordered the retreat back

toward Vicksburg.  As one Union soldier observed on this very spot the night after the battle,

"The dead were piled 3 and 4 deep, like cord wood, in every direction..."

Union Brig. General Alvin Hovey lost nearly 33% of his Division in the battle--

the 2nd highest percentage loss by a US Division within one day of battle during the entire war--and poignantly

wrote in his battle report that," I cannot think of this bloody hill without sadness

and pride...It was, after the conflict, literally the Hill of Death..."

This was the decisive Battle for Vicksburg, and is understood by the most astute historians

as one of the most strategic battles affecting the outcome of the entire war.

About The Owner

Major Digger!  Happily bringing a 3.8" Patent-Base Hotchkiss Bolt to light after 141 years in the hills of Vicksburg.

I have had a total passion for the War Between The States since 8 years old, and have been a reenactor for 31 years.  My obsession with all things war-related, whether specific historical information (such as battles, campaigns, strategy, and tactics), collecting militaria, and "relic hunting" (I prefer "battlefield archeology"), has blessed me with a profound knowledge regarding the War.  I am also a graduate of the University of Cincinnati, Magna Cum Laude, from the School of Business, and had been a Quality Assurance Engineer, Quality Manager, and Operations Manager in my previous professional career.  I utilize this background of history and business management to provide you, the customer, with the most accurate, complete, and forthright information, as well as fair business practices, in all my transactions and dealings.
