Later this weekend I’ll comment on some recent purchases and book buying in general, and also give some thoughts on the biography of Samuel Heintzelman I finished reading a couple of weeks ago.
Chris Wehner has made me feel wholly inadequate as a blogger. He says he gets about 10,000 hits a month, which is more than this site has received since its inception last November.
Thanks to Dave Powell for helping me find a word for which I was searching. After reading about a new book titled McClellan and Failure: A Study of Civil War Fear, Incompetence and Worse by Edward Bonekemper, III (sorry, I provide no links as I won’t take any responsibility for anyone buying this thing), I was curious what word would be the opposite of hagiography. Dave suggested “hatchetography”. Works for me.
