ASL, Great Campaigns of the American Civil War, Great Battles of History, Musket & Pike, La Bataille, BAR, Civil War Brigade, OCS, SCS, Pacific War, Siege of Jerusalem, Zucker's Napoleonics, Jours De Gloire, Men of Iron Series

ASL, Grant Takes Command, The U.S. Civil War, Three Battles of Manassas, Star Wars Rebellion

About Me
I grew up as an "archaeology-brat" with my grandfather, primarily following him around on digs along the Great Lakes, primarily at Fort Mackinac and Fort Michilimackinac. He was also a WWII vet along with his brothers, so it was basically like growing up in the 1940s given their topics of conversation. Thus it was inevitable that I would also pursue historical interests.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Reading, Hiking, Historical Travel, Battlefield Photography and Interpretation at http://militaryhistorytraveler.blogspot.com/ Goodreads at https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/46855416-michael-ryzy
BGG Profile: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/Chicago%20Wargamer
Spending time with Corwin, the scholarly Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I am certainly Sherman to his Peabody.

Hi Mike. Sure I'll put you on, but not very active on the social side of CSW though. You were playing the Ottomans right? As I remember you were also doing GCACW with Mike L? Would love to get up on that system but first its ASL
