Mark,

Yes, an interesting site - but with an American/Upper Canadian slant to it :) The British occupation of the eastern portion of the District of Maine is mostly overlooked, as it the naval war on the Bay of Fundy. I will be contacting the site owners to suggest that they add this additional information. Notwithstanding, they are to be commended for their work in creating this site!

All the best,

Gary

Mark,

It has been a week and not even an acknowledgement of my email. I am not optimistic. Frequently, these are "fire and forget" sites and what you see is all that you are going to get. However, I am prepared to be pleasently surprised.

All the best,

Gary

Hi Gary

Yes, I have been in touch with them myself over a possible links exchange but no reply here either.
