    For the knowledgeable reader, it's probably a bit much. But for anyone who does not know the names as well as you do, I think it's a great improvement.

    I read a very thorough treatment of the civil war in Missouri, Kansas, and those areas. That book was particularly difficult to follow, since many names were found on both sides, the main actors were minor players that I did not know, and they all were scots-Irish in basic form. At the end of it, I was still considerably confused about many sections.
