Thank you for visiting my webpage. My name is John Hamill, and I live in Roanoke, Virginia. I work out of my home as a financial planner. I also operate a Christmas Tree Farm and a photography business. In addition to my military history interest, I am an avid recreational cyclist.
I am not a professional historian or researcher, only an enthusiast fascinated by military history since elementary school. Starting with an interest in submarines, I soon became interested in the Revolutionary War which led to an interest in the Civil War and eventually to almost all history. I earned a double major in Economics and Finance and a minor in History at Virginia Tech in 1995. None of this in any way qualifies me to run this website, and errors do exist. Please bring any to my attention.
I have had the opportunity to visit many battlefields and historic sites, some with the Roanoke Civil War Round Table, of which I am a member. Fields of battle are not like other places; they are made special by men's sacrifices. A battle cannot be properly understood without seeing where it was fought. The battlefield photographs are intended to show the lay of the land and make the battles understandable; many of the photos are panoramic and show the land much better than a single snapshot. Terrain has an enormous impact on battles, and battles change the course of history.
