    Hey JC, where do you get all of these from? Do you have a link to a site that post this stuff somewhere?

    The reason why I ask, is because if a site has this stuff, does it have links to read on the history of it? Instead of looking it up, it may have links to the brief/detailed history. I am a history reader, love to read about history. Funny back in school I didnt do so well in history, weird.

    I pull it from several sources and just look around. Wow, I gave up entering stuff as I am the only one that every posts in here.... lol Ok, I will try to catch up on the days and continue it. Many things come from historyorb.com. But, no links to anything. the US Librtary of congresss is another place as well. There are a few more, but those two sources have almost everything useful.
