While I am pleased with the results of the poll I’m not so sure that I consider this site to be a military history blog. I don’t talk much about military history in the traditional sense and most of my posts reference topics in popular culture, memory, and race. Of course, I am very interested in the military aspects of the war and have spent a great deal of time reading up on the subject. I believe it to be a significant sign of progress that over the past few decades one can be considered a Civil War historian without necessarily focusing on military affairs. The journal Civil War History has it about right in terms of the time frame and topics that articles address.
