Yesterday, my WordPress stats told me that someone visited Bull Runnings by following a link posted on this site. As you see, it’s a blog that features Discussion of Late Triassic Paleontology and Other Assorted Topics. “Hmmm”, said I, “what in the heck is Bull Runnings doing on this guy’s blogroll?” So, I fired off an email, figuring at the very least it would make for a good blog post…as of yet, I have received no reply. But I did find this post on Chinleana. It seems that Mr. Parker’s (the host) great-great-great grandfather was a member of the 1st Connecticut Infantry at First Bull Run, and he has a number of his ancestor’s letters written prior to the battle. I do hope I hear from Mr. Parker. There’s a question concerning just who was in command of the regiment on the field that day, Col. Burnham or Lt. Col. Speidel – maybe these letters can shed some light. Oh, and I have no idea if T-Rex lived in the late Triassic epoch. I just liked the picture.
