This blog has been a fulfilling experience. Although some professional historians may be skeptical of the blogosphere, I embrace its very existence. Blogging has provided me with an outlet for researching and writing about the Civil War, just as it has for many others out there. Years ago, it was hard to find a voice unless you published an article or a book. The existence of blogging has changed all that. Where else can a non-professional historian have a chance to reach such a wide audience and engage in an enriching dialogue with others who share the same passion?
|Enjoying a cigar and Civil War history in Winchester this weekend. I'll have a thing or two to say about the trip in a few upcoming posts.|
Finally, I'd like to thank my readers and fans out there. I never could have dreamed when I first starting typing on my keyboard that so many of you would read my blog on a regular basis. Your interest in what I write about is very satisfying to me. Keep the questions and comments coming. And I'll do my part to keep on posting!
