(A few years ago I saw a Civil War era requisition for sale in Ebay, for $20, and purchased it on a whim. I figured it would be fun to try and identify the items listed in the document as being procured for the regiment - a project that would be entertaining for a couple days at most. As I dug into the clues recorded on this original and seemingky mundane piece of paper, I found more and more of interest. The project ended up taking several weeks and resulted in a PowerPoint slide set, that was printed out and put in a binder. As interest in the report emerged from others, I decided to make this available on the Internet. This webpage is a presentation of all the original PowerPoint slides, which is why sometimes the transitions may at times seem awkward. Best $20 I ever spent!)
