You could win a nice War of 1812 something. Stay tuned.


This trivia question was correctly answered by Diane Williams on Facebook. She correctly answered that the "Saucy Jack" was an American privateer of the War of 1812. Diane's prize was duly dispatched to her and she has just confirmed that it arrived safely.

Here is the latest RipperCon swag-erama giveaway --

Name a Jack the Ripper suspect who lived in Virginia for a time and a Jack the Ripper suspect who lived in Maryland for a time and you could win some bits of VA and MD history. Good luck.

As before, previous winners of RipperCon loot cannot win again.



* I just realized that this military map from 1861 shows Virginia as originally constituted before West Virginia split off!

Not the answer I was looking for. Do you have information that H. H. Holmes lived in Virginia?
