Mr. Ledoux is the creator and webmaster of an award-winning Internet project, Vermont in the Civil War, a grassroots effort to document online the Green Mountain State's role in the War of Rebellion. Living south of the Mason-Dixon Line provides frequent opportunities for him to visit the majority of the battlefields where Vermonters fought during the war. A 26-years U.S. Navy veteran, Mr. Ledoux is a 1996 graduate of the University of Maryland University College, and a graduate of American Military University, Manassas, Virginia, where he was awarded a Master of Arts in Military Studies (Civil War Studies) in December 2001.
