John Wesley Powell

I’m back from an extended break from work and blogging.  Saw the Grand Canyon, and if you’ve never been, it’s something that can’t be described, photographed, or filmed adequately.  John Wesley Powell, a Union vet who lost an arm at Shiloh, explored and mapped the Canyon extensively; that was about the only Civil War connection I made the whole trip, and I think the family was pretty happy about that.  Anyway, I have some catching up to do work-wise, and will be back to posting soon.  I finished up Larry Tagg’s The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln, an important book, and will share my thoughts good and bad later.

Hi Harry,

I’m anxious to know what you thought about _The Unpopular Mr. LIncoln_. I hope you get around to reviewing it sometime soon.
I enjoy the blog.

Hope to get around to it soon, Larry. For now I’ll just say I dug it the most and think it one of the most important AL books to come out during the bicentennial.
