I just came across a blogsite called The Learned Foot. The site is maintained by Jennifer Goellnitz who is an Ohio-based attorney, runner, and Civil War buff. I browsed her site and found it to be quite entertaining. As I am also a runner I thoroughly enjoyed her reflections on jogging through Civil War battlefields. I once jogged the Antietam battlefield in the middle of the summer — not a smart idea. Brian Dirck (A Lincoln Blog) is also a runner and will no doubt find this site to be of some interest. Jennifer also maintains websites on a few Civil War leaders, including A.P. Hill, Strong Vincent, and Dr. Hunter McGuire. I don’t usually recommend non-.edu websites, but these are filled with relevant material that can be used for research purposes. You will find a link to her site in the right hand column.

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
