I apologize for the lack of posts over the past week, but as most of you know my wife and I just completed a move to Boston. We absolutely love our new home as well as the surrounding neighborhood. I am enjoying a very cozy reading room surrounded by my Civil War library. Our house is a short walk from a village area that includes a nice variety of restaurants and small shops.
Unfortunately, we are without Internet access until the middle of next week. Let’s just say that our local Department of Motor Vehicles is more efficient than Comcast. Although we’ve been tied up with house chores, we did manage to take a short walk through Forest Hills Cemetery, which is absolutely beautiful. Along the way we found a number of noteworthy grave sites, including that of William Lloyd Garrison.
Posts may be sporadic for the next two weeks. I have to make some final changes to my Crater manuscript and put together two teacher workshops for a Civil War Preservation Trust conference. See you soon.
