Behind the Scenes - Phases
I thought I'd do a little info dump on some interesting things I found during research for Phases (Free Chapters Here)
First, a map of the city during the time of the story (circa 1873). Click for a larger image. Algiers is at the bottom of the map, and the forest would be beyond that.
Next up is a pic of Canal Street, circa 1890. Again, click the image for a (very) high resolution pic.
Pic of Chartres Street.
And the Cotton Club.
Some info on the real Sheridan (Here as well), the original Fast and Furious bureaucrat (Admitted to supplying Juárez's forces with arms in his memoirs). Andrew Johnson called him an "Absolute Tyrant", and he was. The South hated him for his misdeeds during Reconstruction.

And the Olde Absinthe House.
And the veritable musketoon.
Here's a Colt 1860. Beautiful weapon.
