    My mother's grandfather John L. Mason was drafted as all young men of the south were for that war, but was captured by Ohio 14th regimen and taken to Ohio for several months.  He was uneducated and signed out with his X.  
     
    Just north of Chattanooga is a walled cemetery where many of those men are buried.  It is right along I-75.  Chickamauga was a real battle ground between General Sherman and I don't remember the confederate leaders at that point.  That is where Sherman's march began to Atlanta.  On the eastern side is a place called East Ridge and Skycrest Drive is right on top of the ridge.  Many monuments and markers are placed along there.  Also, on the sides of Lookout Mountain are many monuments.  There is a park on Lookout Mountain where the confederates took position to meet the oncoming union soldiers.  The canons remain at Point Park.  It is very close to Ruby Falls.  So, if you are touring in the area, it will take a few hours to explore all that.  It was an intense fight.  It is no pride to me to have that history in my family, but I understand that when you are drafted, you get no choice.  Some folks who were drafted left the south.

    I'll have to look those up for Nova jaws and see what they have I'll see about ordering a set.  I've been hunting for a set of cole jaws for the Nova G3 chuck but haven't yet had much luck.   Just picked one up sadly wont be here until the 19th.  So for now it will be sanding the tennon off by hand with the disc sander or belt sander which ever comes first.
