    • It’s interesting because shortly before you posted it, my pastor and I were talking about the Ottoman Empire and World War I. It’s not an area I have studied much as that part of the war was almost a forgotten theater to those who weren’t involved in the fighting.

      Some of the bloggers I follow love to include countries that aren’t mentioned much otherwise.

        Wow providence. Like you I didn’t know much of that theatre of conflict and thought I read up on it!

      • Indeed.

        When I was much younger, back before the Internet was a thing, I would look for books in the school and local libraries for history that wasn’t covered well in school. There are plenty of battles that were minor in the grand scheme of a war, unless you or a family member was in them. My great-grandfather (mother’s father’s father) was too young for the Civil War. Several of his brothers were in the war, including one who was the only battle death at Missionary Ridge for his unit. I also other family members who fought for the Confederacy.

      • I had a goal of getting on Tac Tac Dough, a game show, and beating the record set by Thom McKee. He won over $312,000 back in 1980. I never got the chance and these days the record is much higher because of the $1+ million shows that came out. Plus, my memory isn’t as good as it used to be.
