I love Jesus, classical music, history, and Italian food, in that order. I also enjoy studying math.

I've been playing music for about five years now and I am proficient on the cornet and the recorder. I also play a little piano on the side.

comment In Civil War Reenactments why do people walk across the battlefield
@CSharper Accuracy in firearms and speed of reloading. The faster an infantryman can reload and fire, the less necessary ranks become. During the Civil War there was also a lot of "shoot and hope you hit". Many soldiers were under-trained and keeping them in ranks helped maintain order and cohesion.

If they ran, the ranks would get broken and the results would be disastrous.
