Sailboats featured in this edition include:
≈ The large and elegant gaff cutter Moonbeam of Fife III was designed and built in 1903 at the Fife boatyard in Scotland and measures 101′ long.

The Six Meter World Championships took place in 2023 at the Royal Yacht Squadron on the Isle of Wight in England, with both a modern and classic division. Despite little wind and a similar appearance, they were fascinating to watch.

Elona is a 40′ yawl designed by James McGruer in 1962. She was built at McGruer & Co. boatbuilders on the River Clyde near Glasgow, Scotland. The seven McGruer brothers constructed beautiful and successful sailing vessels for about 70 years from the 1920s.

Three beautiful boats: the William Gardner designed P Class gaff sloop, Olympian, of 1913, the Fife designed gaff cutter Viola of 1908, and the more modern Marconi sloop Ikra designed by David Boyd in 1964. These vessels span not just the Atlantic but a wide arc of sailing history.

Loosely based on a Swampscott dory, a traditional design from Massachusetts, 20′ long Jack sails on Loch Oich, part of the Caledonian Canal in Scotland.

This newly restored staysail schooner, Spirit, was designed by John Alden and built in 1934 by Hodgdon Brothers in East Boothbay, Maine. She sails here in the Castine Regatta in Maine.

Tuiga was designed and built in 1909 by William Fife at the firm’s boat yard on the River Clyde in Scotland. She’s a 15 Meter Class, 59’6″ long, with a huge gaff rig handled entirely without winches.

The Eight Meter Class yacht Carron II was built in 1935 at the Fife boatyard on the Clyde in Scotland. She was restored by Fairlee Restorations in the 1990s and was owned by the Aga Khan for a time. She sails now mainly on the Swiss lakes.

The three-masted gaff schooner, Shenandoah, has sailed the world. She was built in 1902 at the Townsend
& Downey shipyard in New York, inspired the design of German Kaiser Wilhelm II’s famous schooner
Meteor III. Here she sails in the Solent near the Isle of Wight in the new Richard Mille Cup.

Two of the most beautiful of the William Fife yachts, the 15 Meter Class Tuiga, built in 1909, and the 19 Meter Class Mariquita of 1911, sail together on the Solent in England in the Richard Mille Cup regatta.

Tigris was built in 1899, a 19th century gaff cutter designed by the renowned Alfred Mylne and built at the MacAllister yard in Scotland. She is one of the Clyde 20-ton cruiser-racer class. She was rediscovered in Southampton, England, in 2001, restored, and now races very successfully in the Mediterranean.

The lovely Concordia 39 yawl, Swift, sails in the Castine Classic Regatta in Maine. She was launched in 1959, hull number 68 of the still strong Concordia fleet built by Abeking & Rasmussen in Germany.

Civil War 2025 Wall Calendar


The Civil War 2025 wall calendar chronicles the war’s most crucial actions with striking color imagery, vintage period photos and historical essays which touch on the war’s key stories and moments. It is written and photographed by Chris Heisey – America’s leading Civil War battlefield photographer.

Events and locations featured in this edition of Civil War include:

The Crater, Petersburg National Battlefield, Petersburg, Virginia

The Battle of the Crater involved a massive mine explosion under Confederate siege lines that blew a gaping hole in a salient section chosen by the Union command as an effective place to try such a feat.

Union Generals Reynolds and Buford Monuments — Chambersburg Pike, Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Linked in Gettysburg lore forever are Union Generals John Buford and John Reynolds. Both West Pointers, Buford was born near Lexington, Kentucky,
where as John Reynolds’ hometown was Lancaster, Pennsylvania. On the march towards Gettysburg, it was General Buford’s cavalry that led the army as it raced to meet Lee’s invasion into Pennsylvania – a grand raiding party that sent panic through every farming family in southern Pennsylvania.

The Stockade and Providence Spring, Andersonville National Historic Site, Andersonville, Georgia

Though the Confederate prison at Andersonville, Georgia, only began taking prisoners in March 1864, just a year before the war was to close, this crude
stockade built by slave labor in a very far off and remote corner of southern Georgia some 100 miles south Atlanta, became a notorious penitentiary known for its wretched conditions which led to unspeakable suffering by the prisoners held there.

Water Oaks Pond, Shiloh National Military, Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee

The Battle of Shiloh occurred on April 6 and 7, 1862, when Confederate forces under Confederate General Albert Sidney Johnston surprised Union forces under General Ulyssess S. Grant who were camped along the banks of the Tennessee River at Pittsburg Landing.

Poague’s Confederate Artillery — Widow Tapp Farm, Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania National Military Park, Spotsylvania County, Virginia

In early May 1864, the war’s two best generals finally clashed at the Battle of the Wilderness in Central Virginia. Union General Ulysses S. Grant was brought from the Western Theater by President Lincoln to bring Confederate General Robert E. Lee to bay.

Union Artillery — Malvern Hill, Richmond National Battlefields, Richmond, Virginia

The Seven Days Campaign was a turning point in the Civil War given Union General George B. McClellan’s army had inched its way to within five miles
of the Confederate capital city by late June 1862. But, when Robert E. Lee took command after the wounding of General Joseph Johnston, the Gray Fox – General Lee’s sobriquet – went on the offensive, driving McClellan’s routed army some 30 miles to the south in bitter defeat. It was a stunning reversal of fortune for the southern cause and made Lee an instant hero and savior to the Richmond populace.

Mississippi Memorial, Vicksburg National Military Park, Vicksburg, Mississippi

William Winters went off to war to make $13 dollars a month—pay his family counted on for their very survival. With many of the letters home, Winters would enclose the monies earned so his family could survive. Sadly, Winters was killed in 1864 in a remote portion of eastern Louisiana near Mansfield, Sabine Pass.

Stonewall Jackson Monument — Henry Hill, Manassas National Battlefield, Manassas, VirginiaAdjectives contemporaries used to describe Confederate Adjectives describing General Stonewall Jackson range from: brilliant, eccentric, lunatic, pious, crazy fool, enigmatic, exceptional, quirky, devout, zealous —to only name a handful. Jackson was a very successful general in the war’s

132nd Pennsylvania Monument — The Sunken Road, Antietam National Battlefield, Sharpsburg, Maryland

William McKinley was born the seventh of nine children some 50 miles south of Cleveland in 1843. When the Civil War began, he volunteered for the
23rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry in which he served with his mentor Rutherford B. Hayes. At the war’s beginning, the regiment saw action in the western hills
of Virginia (today’s West Virginia) at Carnifex Ferry in September 1861. The regiment made an arduous march east to fight in the Antietam Campaign in
September 1862. Hayes was wounded at South Mountain three days prior to Antietam. McKinley escaped Antietam bloody butchery there, even though the
23rd saw heavy action on the Union left flank as the daylong battle ended with over 23,000 casualties—the bloodiest day in American history.

Little Round Top, Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

General Dan Sickles, commander of the Union army’s Third Corps, blatantly disobeyed orders in positioning his corps in front of the high ground at Little Round Top. In the heavy fighting which destroyed his Third Corps, Sickles was hit by a solid cannon shot. His shattered leg was amputated
through the upper thigh on the battlefield. That leg is still on display at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. The one-legged Sickles hobbled with honor on crutches for 50 years as a show of valor until he died in 1914. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery (not Gettysburg) where he had wished to rest.

Driftwood Beach — Jekyll Island, Georgia

On November 28, 1858, a large ship dubbed The Wanderer quietly slipped into a coastal inlet at Jekyll Island, Georgia, and unloaded its human cargo of
some 400 slaves onto the beaches of this beautiful six-mile long barrier island in the southern most corner of Georgia.

Richard Kirkland Memorial — Maryre’s Heights, Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania National Military Park, Fredericksburg, Virginia
One of the most iconic Civil War monuments is dubbed “The Angel of Maryre’s Heights” which memorializes Confederate Sgt Richard Kirkland heroic
aid given to the wounded Union soldiers pinned down in front of the wall. While the monument does not specifically name a regiment he provided water for, it seems likely it was the 155th Pennsylvania. “Don’t you know that you would get a bullet through your head the moment you stepped over this wall,” General Kershaw told Kirkland. “Yes, but I’ll take the chances,” Kirkland replied. Sgt. Kirkland survived as both sides were in awe of his courage and mercy.

California Vintage 2025 Wall Calendar


Larry Grossman has recreated a panoply of icons from the 1930s that are quintessential California. There is the Zep Diner in L.A., the Brown Derby on Wilshire Blvd., the Pan Pacific Auditorium, the Bruin Theater, and a few imagined locations perfect for the era, had only someone thought of them. The big cars, fast airplanes and great shakes are happening here.

This 2025 monthly wall calendar features: Large blocks for notes | Superb printing quality | Heavy 100-pound paper | Deluxe 11- by 14-inch size

California places featured in this edition include:
• A gleaming Santa Fe Super Chief train pulls into San Diego’s beautiful Spanish-style Santa Fe station.

• The Zep Diner was the place to go in L.A. for yummy malts, Hinden-burgers, and frog legs! This fun type of architecture was popular in the 1920s
and 30s.

• A classic 1930’s Greyhound bus departs from a classic Art Deco-style Greyhound depot.

• Amelia Earhart poses between her beautiful 1936 Cord 810 Phaeton, and gleaming Lockheed 10-E Electra twin-engined plane.

• The Cable Car Cafe has a terrific view overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. However, don’t waste your time searching for this establishment, it only ever existed in this artist’s imagination!

• The beautiful Art Deco style Pan Pacific Auditorium in Los Angeles was built in 1935. It was the site of many auto shows and other events until in burned down in 1989.

• The Big Dog Cafe must have been a fun place to eat; it certainly was situated in a gorgeous location…Yosemite Valley! In fact, had it existed anywhere, but in this artist’s imagination, I’m pretty sure the U.S. Park Service would not have approved.

• Woolworth’s, where have you gone? This extra-large store was in Bakersfield, CA.

• Built in 1926, the iconic Brown Derby restaurant on Wilshire Blvd. was the place to see and be seen in the 1930s and beyond. Pity they bulldozed it in 1985 after a fire in the kitchen.

• Built in 1928, The Grand Central Air Terminal featured the first paved runway west of the Rocky Mountains. Many famous aviators, including Lindberg, Hughes, and Earhart (pictured) flew from here. Today it’s owned by Disney and has no runway at all!

• Built in 1937 in Westwood CA, the Bruin Theatre continues to be the location for many movie premiers. It was recently featured in the Quentin Tarantino film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

• The Thompson Trophy Races were a popular and exciting event in 1930s Los Angles. They attracted daredevil pilots from across the
country and around the world, including Jimmy Doolittle who flew the Gee Bee R-1 Racer in the foreground.
