The Dog Ate My Homework

11 05 2007

OK folks – I’ve got a full plate of work, teaching, and class-taking over the next week or so.  Since bills must be paid, I’m afraid I won’t be able to post much.  Here are some things I’m thinking about thinking about for the blog:

I’m planning a new page featuring links to on-line, downloadable books associated with First Bull Run.  I think it will be pretty useful to anyone trying to learn more about the campaign.

I’m finding out some weird stuff about the William Fitzhugh Lee buried in Shepherdstown’s Elmwood Cemetery

On a related note, I’ve found some interesting threads to and from William Kirkland, planted in the same grass as the aforementioned Lee.

I’ll post some thoughts on letters, collected letters, and selected letters prompted by the purchase of a new book that analyzes private letters of R. E. Lee.

I promise to try to get to that review of the Heintzelman biography.  Sometimes I really don’t like to write reviews, and this is one of those times.

I am on the news stand once again, and I’ll let you know what to look for.

Red pants.  I’m always thinking about those damned red pants.

Check back often, at least once each and every day; I’m not sure exactly when I’ll be able to post.  The important thing is for you all to keep my hits (and my ego) up!
