In the field of history, I am largely interested in the study of 19th Century America. Something about the mixture of technological achievements and the simpler times makes it appealing. What I am most interested in is the military history of the century, the transportation history, as well as the history of the West. In each of these subjects, I have collected many books. All of these interests have lead me to develop an extensive collection of historical literature currently numbering in the hundreds of books.
