His lifelong fascination with the Civil War began in 1961 at the age of ten with a visit to Gettysburg, and has continued unabated. Doug was a founding member and later Chairman of the Southern Ontario Civil War Roundtable, and served as a guest lecturer at Sheridan College. His deep interest in William Barksdale dates to the 1980s while re-enacting as a member of Co. B Benton Rifles, 18th Mississippi, part of Barksdale’s famed Mississippi Brigade.
