This week’s column takes a departure from the norm.  The Mailbag has received a few questions that I am not able to answer satisfactorily.  I’ve kept these queries on a back burner for a while, hoping to receive some inspirations of other resources that could hold their answers.  It then occurred to me that the readers of this site are history lovers who could have knowledge of these subjects.  I am hoping that there are folks out there who can help with these questions whose answers have eluded me.
