Just a quick note for those of you who may have been just a bit confused when logging onto Civil War Memory today. You will notice that the blog is no longer the default landing page. I am beginning to think of Civil War Memory as more than just a blog. It’s still the core of the site, but you will notice that I created a page for my forthcoming book on the Crater and I hope at some point soon to create a page for some of my favorite classroom lesson plans. I want this site to be a resource for k-12 history teachers and others in the field. It should also more effectively reflect my own work as a teacher, public speaker, and historian.
I am still in the beginning stages of thinking through this shift in focus so be prepared for continuous changes to the site and perhaps a few breakdowns. Of course, I would love to hand this project over to a professional, but I simply do not have the funds for it, so I will rely on my own meager web skills.
