My thanks goes out to Mark Peters, my friend from across the pond who has been asking me to start blogging away again. Thanks for the encouragement Mark and the A-1 steak sauce will be sent when you and Yan need it!

  1. Welcome back Mark. Sorry I hadn’t noticed before, but look forward to catching up on your most recent posts. That A1 steak sauce is good!

  2. You might consider adding Com. James Iredell Waddell to your list. Commanded the Maryland Navy during the Oyster wars, had a house in Preston, buried in Annapolis. Fired the last shots of the Civil War in the Bering Sea, not realizing the war was over.Several good books about his cruise of the CSS Shenandoah.Born in N.Carolina.
