The story behind the Georgia Battalion website is deeper than appears on the site as it now exits.  I wanted readers to get a sense of the motivation for the site as Rick Allen and I originally envisioned it.  I also wanted to provide full disclosure about my dealings with the San Jacinto Museum in applying there on behalf of Joseph Andrews, M.K. Moses, and James Peter Trezevant.  So, on the Home page I provided a link to my essay “Past and Future of the Georgia Battalion Project-2017” so that anyone interested could request referral to my complete documentation. As usual, I’m indebted to Rick for his insights in formulating my statement. R.W.T.
