My hats off to Bruce and Mike for another excellent volume and Id like to extend my thanks to everyone who contributed and shared their collections knowledge etc.

With that all said and out of the way one of the things I found fascinating during my first sitting with the book (naturally taking place on the throne) was the picture of stacked surrendered rifles on PG 43. Did anyone notice the large number of crushed muzzles? Not all, but a good number of them are crunched to varying degrees. Guess they got tired of this and decided to just pile them up and wait for "cpt crunch" to be invented? Not sure why I feel the need to bring it up guess I thought it was note worthy
