garp.jpgRene Tyree, who Walt Garp would call a gradual student in military history, has a new blog, Wig-Wags.  I’m not adding it to the blog roll just yet.  We’ll wait a little while and see what she has to offer, but it’s looking good so far.

Rene has set up her blog to keep the mass of information coming from [her] coursework and research organized and to plug into the rich conversations in the blogosphere on this topic [the Civil War].  Good luck with that…just remember there’s a lot of bad and beware [that’s Cat Stevens, but good advice nonetheless].

I see too that Rene, like me, is using her blog as something more and setting up some pages for various sorts of information (biographies, etc).  I think we’ll be seeing more of this in the sphere as time goes on.

The current image in the Wig-Wags banner – keeping in mind these things change – is a photo of the Union signal station on Elk Ridge during the 1862 Maryland Campaign.  The officer in the photo has been identified and a CDV of him located.  You can see the CDV and read the story on the Save Historic Antietam Foundation (SHAF) website.
