Three years ago this weekend I started blogging at Civil War Memory. At the time I had little sense of what I was doing or where it would lead. Over time the place of blogging within my broader historical interests has become much more carefully defined. It has led to writing projects, speaking invitations, and has put me in contact with some wonderful people in the National Park Service, academia, the Virginia State government and countless others who make Civil War Memory a part of their daily routine. Thanks to all of you for reading and sharing your thoughts. I haven't lost any steam even after 1,487 posts so you are stuck with for at least the near future.
With that in mind keep a lookout for some major changes to this site over the next few months.
