He has been a member of the American Civil War Round Table – Qld since 2013, a not-for-profit society and has conducted several historical talks for members. Additionally, this lead to participating in the annual History Alive festival held over a weekend at Fort Lytton whereby Danny has engaged with the public to answer questions on the American Civil War or any other aspects of American history or history generally. Museums have always been of interest including attending the Queensland Museum’s displays titled: Mummy, Secrets of the Tomb; Afghanistan, Hidden Treasure from the National Museum of Kabul; Medieval Power; Gladiator and others. A different type of example was attending a talk from former NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin in Sydney. Assistance was provided to the University of New England for research in the American Civil War relating to insurrections, strikes, duels and similar occurrences.
