Hey! Clad!

I have been thinking that you should try again at the Blockades discussion. If you've not figured about any other way to do it, how about this? The Blockade Journal! It could be about the puttin' together of the Blockades, from the viewpoints of Gid Welles and Steve Mallory, though it won't be from diaries and ORs of course unless you can find all that info! Anyway, you could pinpoint the major stuff in the construction of the Blockade (i.e. the Norfolk Affair, the Creation of the Blockade, Ward's campaign to hold the Potomac from the Rebs) starting from April 19th onward. After every Welles entry, I can put in a Malloroy entry about the same event. You could be Gideon Welles and I could be Stephen Malloroy. How's that sound, Clad? Get back to me, Clad. We'll share a grog and talk it over.
