The great news is that I received a communique from the Godfather of battle digitization, Brian Downey, and he plans to be active on his blog again this year (work commitments kept him away for most of 2010). To show he is in earnest, he has a new post up at Behind Antietam on the Web. Welcome back, Brian!
Things I’m working on for the next few posts:
- an interview with a Gettysburg entrepreneur;
- a preview/review of the January 10 American Experience program on U. S. Grant;
- a preview of the new issue of America’s Civil War magazine;
- a couple of items of interest from the new issue of North and South magazine;
- an expansion on my article on Gettysburg’s Jacob Weikert farm in the current issue of Civil War Times magazine;
- another way to follow Bull Runnings using an e-Reader (that is what they call those things, right?);
- and something I’ve been putting off for a long while, a look at an essay that discusses expectations at the time that the great military leader of the Civil War would emerge from a place other than the military establishment.
As usual, other things are sure to come up, including more primary material on First Bull Run and various news items, so stay tuned!
