Euge, i also found this information about Hette's book, but thanks again for bringing it up. Yes Hette seemed quite good in making drawings. This book is about a quarter of Amsterdam. You migth read about it on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordaan Nice booklet you have about Old Hickory ! Hope you can post more documents about your grandfather. They fit perfectly in this thread. That also counts for you Kodiak, as i rember correctly your father was in 117th ? As for the German AAR i had little time last week to continue translaton. But i will be back soon.
