It’s hard to believe that as of today I have been blogging for six years. Those six years include 2,400 posts, just under 1 million visits and roughly 25,000 comments. Thanks once again to all of you who make this site part of your daily routine. It goes without saying that this past year has seen its share of excitement and unexpected change, but I am looking forward with a great deal of enthusiasm to the coming year and the publication of my first book in June 2012. I still enjoy blogging, but more importantly, I believe the site continues to serve an important function in the blogosphere and beyond. What I do here continues to put me in touch with new people and opportunities to share my passion for history and teaching with the broader public. I love the fact that Civil War Memory continues to make people think, laugh, and yes, even lash out in anger. It suggests that I am doing something right.

"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has... Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation."
