Davis Update 4/20: Blessed Good News!
I bring tidings of GOOD NEWS to report of our beloved son, Davis Lee! Praise God that over the past month, all your many PRAYERS are BEING ANSWERED! His MRI showed NOTHING we didn't already know or expected to find--that since right before his Bone Marrow Transplant, his bones have showed the decalcification/bone-loss to his body, as well as the damage to the brain (synaptic damage)--all the horrible chemo and radiation have taken their debilitating toll upon his little body. Nor did they find any underlying, special "root cause" to his worsening ligament, tendon, and muscular tightening and muscular atrophy he started acutely experiencing early this year.
I am MOST PROUD to relay Davis' GREAT improvement in his lower body increase in strength, dexterity, muscular growth and overall improvement in his leg/feet! His hand and finger dexterity has been "arrested"--NOT worsening--and we are working so very hard with physical therapy, braces, and ABOVE ALL---FAITHFUL PRAYERS from all y'all--that have stopped the worsening condition in his hands/fingers! He ALSO has been improving VERY WELL with his learning/schooling aptitude, as gauged by the professional tutoring and testing through the nationally-renowned "Sylvan Learning System" organization! We also have found a private Christian School here that has programs designed for children like Davis, in small class sizes, that will be able to teach him at his age and learning level, with more "one-on-one" teaching, as well as tutoring after school, so Davis shall FINALLY be attending a REAL SCHOOL--and not some "Special ED" program thrown into the public school system.
PLEASE CONTINUE your UNCEASING PRAYERS in ALL FAITH in JESUS' NAME, that Davis Lee be FULLY and IMMEDIATELY HEALED from all physical, mental, and spiritual afflictions.

The "Holy Grail" of CS Imported Enfield Rifles
THE TRIPLE-MARKED "SHC" Enfield Rifle Purchased & Imported by Exclusive CS Importer's of Sinclair, Hamilton & Company
The DOUBLE "Crown/SH/C" mark under Stock behind the Trigger Guard, and the OVAL "SH/C" Stamping on the Barrel Breech
Only a HANDFUL in Existence--AND THIS IS THE most BEAUTIFUL SPECIMEN of them ALL!
Note: to get a GOOD PIC of the Double Stock SHC markings, I had to take the Pictures at an ANGLE to show BOTH most clearly (glare gets in the way with "head-on" pic!), so the SHC marking that his HORIZONTAL with picture looks somewhat WIDE/STRETCHED...just an OPTICAL ILLUSION from the shot angle AND that it is over the BEVELED/ROUNDED edge of the stock! Same is true with the 90-Degree turned SHC marking--it, too, looks ELONGATED/THIN because of the Angle of the Pic.

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.

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.
