I'll definitely have to read that.
For those who don't know, and this is directly tied to REDSZONE, Abner Doubleday was one of the Officers who defended Fort Sumter when it was fired on.
And, guess how many Officers were at the Fort at the time?
Yes, Nine. There were nine Officers in defense of the fort. Coincidence?
