Great collection but I think all this text is from Wikipedia? Probably should hyperlink so as it's updated people can find that ... maybe at least mention that these are other people's writings?

Hahah I started reading this thinking you were a huge buff and then noticed the neutral point of view that is usually absent ...

John A. Logan



Logan fought at Bull Run as an unattached volunteer to a Michigan regiment, and then returned to Washington, resigned his congressional seat, and entered the Union army as Colonel of the 31st Illinois Volunteers, which he organized. He was known by his soldiers with the nickname "Black Jack" because of his black eyes and hair and swarthy complexion, and was regarded as one of the most able officers to enter the army from civilian life. He served in the army of Ulysses S. Grant in the Western Theater and was present at the Battle of Belmont, where his horse was killed, and at Fort Donelson, where he was wounded. Soon after the victory at Donelson, he was promoted to brigadier general, as of March 21, 1862. Major John Hotaling served as his chief of staff. During the Siege of Corinth, Logan commanded first a brigade and then the 1st Division of the Army of the Tennessee. In the spring of 1863, he was promoted to major general to rank from November 29, 1862.
In Grant's Vicksburg Campaign, Logan commanded the 3rd Division of James B. McPherson's XVII Corps, which was the first to enter the city of Vicksburg in 1863, and after its capture, Logan served as its military governor. In November 1863 he succeeded William Tecumseh Sherman in command of the XV Corps; and after the death of McPherson he commanded the Army of the Tennessee at the Battle of Atlanta (July 22, 1864) until relieved by Oliver O. Howard. He returned to Illinois for the 1864 elections but rejoined the army afterward and commanded his XV corps in the Carolinas Campaign.
In December 1864, Grant became impatient with George H. Thomas's performance at Nashville and sent Logan to relieve him. Logan was stopped in Louisville when news came that Thomas had completely smashed John Bell Hood's Confederate army in the Battle of Nashville.
Logan had been disappointed when Howard was given permanent command of the Army of the Tennessee after McPherson's death, and Sherman arranged for Logan to command the army during the May 1865 Grand Review in Washington.

Have you heard if there is gonna be another.. Robert J. "Bob" Gilliland
Auto.. In horrors of war 2. It is without a doubt the most amazing autograph I have ever seen.... The one you pulled for me is like a 52 topps mantle to a baseball collector. I love aviation history, I was lucky enough to meet and get an auto from Robert Morgan in his book "the man who flew the memphis belle" and have pulled 3 Tuskegee autos from panini americana heroes and legends. So with my three favorite planes growing up being the b-17, p-51, and sr-71. I hope to track down another Gilliland auto someday... Hopefully in series 2

I had a quick look on the checklist and could not find his name, So i guess he is not in this years product. I hope you find his auto, Good luck
