          Mark.... I was just curious because I recognized the significance of the red colored kepi. I've done quite a bit of Civil War research and reading, as least to the service performed by a great-great-grandfather. He was a member of the 2nd Connecticut Heavy Artillery Regiment. From reading and attending Civil War Re-enactments I believe that most artillery units had the color red on their caps in some way or form, regardless of side.

            That is some excellent carving Mark. Have always really liked your carving style. The very best to you in your recovery.

              Great work as usual mark. Glad to hear the surgery went well and that you are recovering nicely. Keep up the good work.

              Before they slip me over the standing part of the fore sheet, let them pipe: "Up Spirits" one more time.
