No document of this type is ever complete. Understand that as new
information becomes available, this document will be added to, changed,
amended, and ameliorated. If you have pertinent source documents
or research materials containing additional items of interest, please
send them along.
There are some absolutes in history, many things we very strongly believe
based upon the evidence, and a number of things of which we have a good
understanding gleaned from source material. I have tried to avoid
the words “always” and “never” unless the subject
is beyond question, e.g. polyester was never worn in the 18th Century.
I have however made some strong statements, stopping short of absolutes,
on topics where there is no known evidence to support anything else.
