I purchased a copy and have enjoyed the history. It seems the SIMS family was in every battle and war as defenders of the New World. From service in the American Revolution until recent wars and conflicts. It seems that friendships were important as Pariss was George Wahingtons body guard during the American Revolution and Charles Sims was an staff officer for G.W. and his pall bearer. It is a worthy read to learn of contributions made by the Sims family to our nation. I found it was a family of service to our nation. During WW1 many Sims served in the Army & Navy. One was Admiral William Sowden Sims who served in the United States Navy. He was FDR's contact & fought during the late 19th and early 20th centuries to modernize the navy. During World War I he commanded all United States naval forces operating in Europe. He also served twice as president of the Naval War College. There is so much to be studied and learned in this book.
