I thought  it was, like, Jim's biography.

Charles Totten's Strategos

(which was also part of the inspiration for the Minneapolis gaming group that eventually evolved into their Braunstein games and later, the early Blackmoor games that inspired D&D

History of Wargaming – Charles Grant

with this article, we're well into the 20th century, and beyond the original intent of this series of exploring 19th century wargaming

we're also going to start running into some copyright issues with being able to share some of the rules info

So this will be the end of this series from Mr Mosher, and perhaps we can prevail upon him to join us again with a different sequence of articles in the future
