Hi, Mr. Osbourne.  I have a picture of John E. Houghtaling, a private in the Civil War who came from Kingston, NY.  Do you know where I can find additional information on John's service?  Also, do you know what year his Civil War photo was taken.  He served from 1862-1865.  Thank you.

Mr. Osborne, if you want more information on our new Civil War park go to www.fscws.org.  The website contains lots of information about what is going on.  By the way, if you have any information about regiments that were in the 11th Corps of the Army of the Potomac during the winter of 1862-63, we would be interested.  They were camped in the area of our park, also.  I know there were several New York regiments.

Hello, Mr. Osborne.  I have read your book on the Ulster Guard and Colonel Theodore Gates' diary that you edited and enjoyed them very much.  I live in Stafford County where they spent the winter of 1863.  I am very interested in an entry in Colonel Gates' diary.  I am a member of a group creating a new Civil War park in Stafford County.  In that park are 3 significant fortifications.  In Colonel Gates' diary on May 2, 1863 he mentioned that he had been placed in command of the protection of the RF&P railroad between Accacac (Accakeek) Creek and had laid out additional forts.  Our park is near the railroad on Accakeek Creek.  Also, laster, Colonel Gates mentioned that he was ordering the inhabitants of the Green family house near one of the forts so it could be torn down.  A fourth fort which is not located in our park but is very close is close to the old Green home site.  Do you have any other information concerning these entries?  I would be very interested if you do.  We are trying to determine who laid out and constructed our forts so we can give them credit when we open the park, if possible.  Thanks, Ken Pitts

Hello, Mr. Osborne.  Do you know what happened to the contents of the Baldwin GAR Post in Hunter?  I'm trying to find a photo of my 2X Great Grandfather- Burton Tompkins. He was a member of the 20 NYSM (3 Mos) and the 4th NYHA with his brother George Tompkins.  Burton is buried in Maplewood Cem (1916), and George is buried in Ashland Cem. (1927).  Thank you, Frank Tompkins- Westfield, MA

I can only forsee progress and raising the awareness of our viewers giving them all a window into yesterdays past and an appreciation for what the men and their families sacrificed during the American Civil War. This is only the beginning and if there are any suggestions and or corrections I completely and graciously welcome your input in order to properly document New Yorks' role in the War between the states.
