The ink has to dry first, but I have big news coming. In the meantime, let me drop a teaser consisting of a photo and a bullet list of facts.
- The first war to feature rocket warfare, submarine kills and aircraft carriers was…the American Civil War. (The Hunley was a Confederate sub that sank the US warship Housatonic. Floating flattops were used as launch and landing pads for observation balloons.)
- President Abraham Lincoln was nearly killed by a friendly rocket test.
- Thousands of individuals fought for both sides during the Civil War.
- Manned rocket flight was proposed (and perhaps tested) in the first part of the nineteenth century.
Watch for further announcements!
