Jeez, I’ve been so busy I forgot that this month marked Bull Runnings’ fifth anniversary! Thanks to all of you for taking the time to stop by and check out what goes on here. So far I’ve made 1,240 posts on various Civil War topics. Lately I’ve been trying to get back to adding to the resources section of the blog, and that will be my focus for the coming year.
I’m thankful that this modest site has opened so many doors for me, especially in 2011. I’ve had the opportunity this year to do things I never thought possible, like lead a tour for the Gettysburg College Civil War Institute, speak as part of the Gettysburg Foundation’s anniversary series, address three great roundtables in Pinehurst, NC, Washington, DC, and Leesburg, VA, and write for the Weider History Group’s fine publications America’s Civil War and Civil War Times. And I owe it all to Bull Runnings and you, dear readers.
