This morning I learned that Civil War Memory has won the 2007 Cliopatria Award for Best Individual Blog and I couldn’t be more pleased. Congratulations to the other winners. Thanks to Tim Lacy and Tim Abbott for nominating this site and to the committee which made the final selection. Any of the other blogs nominated are equally deserving of this award; most of them are part of my daily walk through the blogosphere. Finally, thanks to all of you who make this site part of your daily routine. Here is the citation:
Kevin Levin’s Civil War Memory is an impressive individualblog, with a track record of several years. It commonly offers the best of both military history blogging and history blogging about the broader political, intellectual, and social context of regional conflict. This past year, for example, Civil War Memory has devoted considerable attention to the Lost Cause myth and the quest for Black Confederates.
