HG:  I took your suggestions and attempted to re-write the section on the promotion.  I think I used the name Wildebeast everywhere, except in the Introduction.  (I can't find the misspelling)  When I wrote the code, I assumed that the Horseman could get to the promotion zone with more ease than a pawn.  I guessed that there would be more promotions in this game.  Can a king and two horseman put a bare king in checkmate?  I will try this and run some tests.  If the answer is yes, I like my promotion rules "as is".  If the answer is no. I probably should fix/adjust the promotion rules.  If you dislike the promotion rule, I am open to suggestions.  I think I have 1 vote from dax for promotion to other pieces like knight, rook, bishop, etc.
