New Page

5 04 2007

Over to the right you’ll see I’ve added a new page with sub-pages.  See “Official Reports – Union”, with the sub-page “#6 – Brig. Gen. Irvin McDowell”.  I’ll add pages for Confederate reports and for Official Correspondence for both armies.

All of this comes from a DVD of the OR’s.  There are some spelling errors on the disk, and I’ll try to verify with the hard copy.  But if you see something wrong, drop me a line.  It’s also important to understand that the OR’s are not in and of themselves primary data.  They are transcriptions of documents, and even the printed version undoubtedly includes transcription errors.  And have I mentioned what a pain in the ass it is to copy lots of data into WordPress?  Even though I had already put the McDowell reports into Word, it took me about 2 hours to get it into WordPress.  Infuriating.

I haven’t forgotten about my promise to comment on the Heintzelman biography.  I’ll get around to it soon, and have already started writing the post.  But taxes are due…
