    I’m a new member from Chicagoland who is a novice on the subject of colonial/revolutionary America. I have previously devoted the vast majority of my interest in Civil War and WWII subjects. I just wanted to say ‘Hi’ to everyone.

    Hello Jim, welcome to the forum!

    The wars that helped shape America are certainly some of the major pieces in it’s history, and the impacts of each war often result in a major new era/lifestyle for the country. I’ve had a fair amount of interest in the Civil War before, and then went back a little further to learn about the American Revolution. One of the biggest surprises for me (albeit it quite understandable in hindsight) is the difference in scale. An average Rev War battle could have a few hundred to a few thousand troops (a major battle having maybe 10,000 – 20,000), whereas the Civil War was a much larger scale, with more people, equipment, and consequently, artifacts available today.

    Always fun to learn about them. I hope you enjoy your time here on RevWarTalk

    Thanks,
    Dan
