We’re already to Wednesday. That’s what happens when you’ve got a day off at the start of the week. This’ll be my last day here in the old office. We’re moving up the street a couple miles to a new building. Got a couple days at home, though, as they work to finish up so...

During the American Civil War, it wasn’t terribly uncommon for two armies to be within several miles of one-another and barely know the other was there. This was a time before satellites and drones, after all. As such, small scouting parties meeting or a raid happening might involve just a coup...
