Updates: First, I hope that all of you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving. I am spending much of my break reviewing the copy edits for Searching For Black Confederates. Within a few months I should have the page proofs in hand, which is the final stage before the book goes to print next Fall.
I trust that all of you have checked out the new content page that I am calling ‘News.’ It’s a space that I am using for short updates that don’t warrant a full post.
