"Dear Ron: I've now had time to digest your excellent work, "The Chronological Tracking Of The American Civil War Per The Official Records Of The War Of The Rebellion." It will be a treasured signed addition to my library. You can certainly know your work adds to my appreciation of not only the Civil War but of research as well. I do enjoy your personal commentary throughout the work as well. It gives the reader a feeling that the author is with the reader. This work is not just a day by day statistics chronicle. An excellent accomplishment. Like you, I have studied the photographs of Brady, Alexander, Gardner, and O'Sullivan. I'm sure you have seen George Bernard's "Photographic Views Of Sherman's Campaign," my favorite. William A. Frassanito's "Gettysburg" is equally as interesting as "Antietam, Americas Bloodiest Day." Also I must recommend the excellent maps and books by "William R. Scaife." My amateurish inclusion of the Cornell University "Official Records" site I'm very proud of. I was inspired to search hard for the "OR" by your work. I'm a little intimidated revealing to an author my beginner level computer skills and my very rusty sentence structure and punctuation ability. Now you must not stop here. Perhaps a history and photographed tour guide of your favorite campaign. Or a detailed compilation of all surviving Regimental Battle Flags and their history. Surely that would be no more difficult than the work you have published. Or the definitive history of The Marshall Tucker Band. I'll be watching and if I can be of service here it would be an honor. Take Care. My very best compliments, Don Gordon

I just received your book and it is a wonderful piece of work! Just had to let you know that I am pleased with it immensely.

Mr. Mosocco, While searching for the Civil War Regimental Histories Series (specifically 9th virginia) I happened upon this web site. I was just scanning down the page and was looking at what was on it when I just happened to come across the following: "Read the Obituary and Story of E.A. Moore, of Captain Wiley G. Coleman's Virginia Heavy Artillery (formerly Neblett's Heavy Artillery (owned by R.A.Mosocco, the owner of this web site for your personal viewing)" I am distantly related to the Coleman's and I basically only read up to that part when I clicked on it. What came up was of great discovery. Mr. Edward A. Moore is a great great uncle of mine. My grandmother remembers an Uncle Ned that was in the Civil War (she was born in 1921) but that is about it. I am doing my family history so I know for a fact that he married my great great grandmother's sister. (my great great grandparents are Benjamin Watkins Leigh Taylor and Laura A. G. Rawlings). Benjamin was in the 2nd Co H 9th Virginia. I am glad that you posted this....It gives me greater pleasure to know that I have family that was noticed. Mary E. Chidester
