New Post 3: Even 'Indy' Had a Plan

Just to show you my heart's in the right place, these are spreadsheets that disclose the full resources -- 3,500 of them -- that inform my book "Holstory -- Gunleather of the Twentieth Century -- The Second Edition".

The two files are locked and so won't seem to be of much use until you realize that for me, when they are unlocked I sort them to suit my need. So, for example, one version that is presorted is called "player" and there are all players of holstory with their known contributions listed together. Look at the bottom of each: a second tab of the non-players who nevertheless had their data collected as a baleen whale catches plankton -- incidentally.

The purpose of the list called "chronologically" is to show how every event fits into holstory, and into history; so there are macro-events noted there such as the opening of the Transcontinental RR and the beginning/end of WWII -- down to the day. Some entries about such as Texas Ranger Captain J.R. Hughes, who was one of the most influential historical figures on gunleather development and usage, seem almost day-by-day.

The good news is that when one has a copy of any of the three editions of Holstory -- the first edition in hardcover with dust jacket, the first edition in softcover, and/or the second edition that is in hardcover without a jacket -- the footnotes on every page can be located in the Chronological list by their dates. Want to learn more about the player in that footnote? Look for him/her in the Player list instead.
