Wilson's Creek, Bloody Hill

I've been trying to use my Wordpress Blog\website to encompass my historical and wargame interests. The site is doing ok so rather than duplicate things I thought it easier to just link this blog to my Wordpress site if people are interested in the whole story along with picture captions. Please visit the link and let me know what you think. Thanks.
