The comment regarding timing (wrong war series) and boards was directed to the irrelevant response to your query, not to your (correctly placed) inquiry.
The recent rearrangement of these message boards makes it very hard to figure out what is responding to what, I am sorry to say.
It is also too bad that some have so little concept of American history that Civil War queries are placed on boards for the Revolutionary War, and material relating to 1790-1870 is placed both on French & Indian War boards and Revolutionary War boards. The various Boards' administrators often don't seem to be paying attention.
I am sorry you thought that the comment was responding to your post.
