Comments 4/28/02 What an incredible regimental website! I am a descendant of Charles Treudt who served in the 104th Illinois, brigaded with the 42nd, from June '63-June'65. My ancestor was in the regimental ambulance corps the same time as Goodge of the 42nd; Goodge's letters fill in many great details of my ancestor's comparable role! I have written a book about the men of the 104th Illinois which is currently being formated for publication. But, I am always looking for the loan of photographs, letters and diaries from the 104th Illinois to use in my writing. Sincerely, Steve Adolphson

Comments Tim, I thought I'd hit your website again and wanted to say that the updates are great and I'm appreciative of yor constant postings and updates. It is a very active and current site; one you should be proud of and commended for. I look forward to future communication and thanks for all your help and efforts in behalf of those dedicated Americans who fought with the 42nd Indiana. You have managed, in my humble opinion, one of the best research sites pertaining to the Civil War. Keep up the good work! Stewart DeVane, President, 42nd Indiana company H reenactors

Comments Tim, An outstanding Website. I have visited many times, but never thought to log on to the Guest Book. We had an extremely great time in Evansville on June 23rd. Our expectations for the dedication were far exceeded, thanks for your support and that of the reenactors. Saying "Thank You" can not convey how deeply appreciative we are for all you folks have done. Susan is in the process of sending out letters.
