Davis & Family Update

PLEASE  READ

 NEW UPDATE for Tuesday 4/7

All Are Well...All IS WELL !!!

Greetings and Blessings to all.  Just wanted to let everyone know that ALL the "viruses" and health "issues" with the cold/flu are GONE!  We're all enjoying the glorious Southern Spring--which means ALLERGY TIME!   Ah...but WELL WORTH IT for Dixie!

Otherwise, Davis continues his "water therapy" for his "physical therapy" and making some progress.  Davis is also doing Equestrian (horse-back riding) therapy, and ALSO making PROGRESS, Praise God!  He's doing GREAT in school, and as HAPPY as any "normal" child 12 years old can be, Praise God. 

We would like to THANK Y'ALL for your YEARS of faithful business, infinite loving-kindness, Fellowship, and truest friendship.

ANY and all PRAYERS that you would so kindly and selflessly give on our behalf--especially for our son Davis Lee and his cancer after-effects-- it is 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.
