Where can you get parts for the Howard Arms .32 cal revolver and is Howard Arms still in business?

HOWARD ARMS CO. Tradename on shotguns used by Fred Bifflar & Company of Chicago, Illinois, made by Crescent Fire Arms Company. I would expect that the same hardware store would have used the same tradename on handguns which were probably made by the same company. Unfortunately, both are long out of business but Crescent was purchased by Stevens which was purchased by Savage Arms, so someone at savagearms.com may be able to tell you something. A little additional research found an answer on Ron Gabel's site that says Meriden Arms made the Howard Arms revolvers. The only dates I can find for Fred Bifflar are 1870-1890, but it may have started earlier and must have ended later. Crescent was established in 1892 and Meriden Arms didn't exist until 1905 and I find several references connecting these two companies with Bifflar retail business.

What did Stonewall Jackson do before the civil war?

Jackson was an orphan, raised by his uncle. As a teen he obtained an appointment to the US Military Academy at West Point, where he had to work very hard to overcome the deficiencies of his early lack of education. When he graduated he served in the US Army, and performed very well in the Mexican War. After that war he resigned from the Army and became a Professor of Mathematics and Artillery at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia. Jackson was very religious, and was remembered there for conducting a Sunday School for black children. The cadets at the Institute called him "Old Tom Fool" Jackson, or sometimes "Old Blue Light", on account of his piercing, very blue eyes, the "Blue Lights" being a type of Presbyterians, which was Jackson's denomination.

Stonewall Jackson, US military leader during the Civil War.

However, he died of complications of pneumonia eight days later. His death was a severe setback for the Confederacy, affecting not only its military prospects, but also the morale of its army and of the general public.

How did Thomas Stonewall Jackson help the North and the South?

He helped the South as Lee's right-hand man in the Peninsula campaign of summer 1862, making the Confederates look like winners for the first time.

He helped the North by getting mortally wounded at Chancellorsville, after which Lee's army was never so good again. Lee's own health began to decline from this tme, possibly as a psychological reaction to Stonewall's grievous loss.

To say that Stonewall Jackson "helped" the North is incorrect.

How fast could General Stonewall Jackson's famous Foot Cavalry march?

I like your reference of "old jack's foot cavalry". Just keep in mind that he did command infantry. His 1st Virginia Brigade marched so fast, that they were given this nickname. (Among other things.) His brigade was known to be extremely quick. Jackson pressed his men so hard, that some would pass out or even die of exhaustion. They were able to march about 400 miles in somewhere around a month. That was when the conditions were good, and everything was in the south's favor.

What battles did the 1944 Canadian conscripts fight?

Those who were conscripted were allowed to choose if they would volunteer to fight, or to "stay in Canada " . This was the choice given by the Liberal party Prime Minister, McKenzie King, as a way to placate the Quebecers who didn't want to actually take the chance of being killed in action in Europe, but who wanted the pay and meals that the Canadian Army would be forced to provide to them. The "Zombies " as they were called by the Canadian soldiers who HAD volunteered to fight and die overseas, sat on their asses in comfortable camps in Canada, taking up food and equipment that was sorely needed in Italy and later in France and Belgium and Holland. The Zombies were "asked " every week, by their Officers, if they would sign an agreement to "serve outside of Canada " but only about 5 percent of them actually ever did so. They were sent out as re-inforcements to various Canadian Army units, in small numbers, never more than 10 or 20 at a time. So to answer the question, the small number of Canadians, mostly from Quebec, who were " conscripted " and who actually got to the front line fighting, were a tiny minority of the overall numbers in the Canadian Army in WW2.
