Finished.

thank you to all the reenactors who actually make this research possible
 in the first place. I can't explain how important you are when it comes
 to helping the public remember our past.
Also, a thank you to my parents who had resources I never could have dreamed of. 
They don't come more supportive than you both.
And also a thank you to Woijech Wolynski, even though he won't like it. He's like a fountain of invaluable information when you least expect it.
