I’m back from a most excellent adventure with the Society of Civil War Historians at the Union League in Philadelphia. I saw some old friends and made some new acquaintances, all while having the time of my life, hob-knobbing in a ritzy joint, holding some artifacts I never thought I’d get within 20 feet of, and learning a lot. But I have Cub Scout day camp to deal with the rest of the week, and baseball playoffs and work to catch up on over the weekend. I’ll post a full summary of the conference next week. Promise.
