Ancient history, modern or a little of everything. Any particular areas where you might be an expert in?

I have taken a couple of ancient history classes now, so I would not call it a specialty, but it is my strong suit so far.

Native/European Relations on the New York Frontier ca 1740-1790. This includes an in-depth study of both Material Culture and the key Cross Cultural Communicators.

I have degrees in American history, and constitutional law and history, with minors in engineering, Russian history, and political science.

Constitutional Law and history is definitely my specialty, since that is what my Doctoral work was in.

I specialize in finding errors in obershutze916's posts

My interests( won't say I am an expert by any stretch) lie mainly in the Russian-German conflict in WW2, the SS, and the holocaust. My original interest was in the holocaust but the other two are so entwined with it that I eventually was forced to branch out my knowledge.

I used to read a lot about the American-Indian wars but have not read anything in 10 or so years.

The blackpowder sharpshooter. They preceded the sniper but very little has been written to date about them. What has been written gives them only cursory treatment and the entire story awaits to be told. I've been doing research for over six years on it and have spent time at various historical sites, libraries, battlefields and the National Archives.

For a sample of the snippets/vignettes that I've collected, go to the black powder forum of http://www.thehighroad.org and check out the thread "Bedtime Tales or Sharpshooter Stories." Be prepared for a good read.

I enjoy all history from Ancient to Modern times. And of course I love American history.

But if I had choose which epoch and culture that I find the most interesting it would have to be Precolumbian and Meso-American Cultures.

I know, its pretty off the wall, but I find it very fascinating.

Sorry about that....but the mask and helmet combo does have a certain ape-like look to it. No insult intended though.
