McDowell and Franklin

I was recently going through some older posts, and was reminded of a series of posts from over 4 years ago by Dmitri Rotov over at Civil War Bookshelf. They explore the relationship between Irvin McDowell and William Franklin, and shed some light on the duo prior to First Bull Run (and beyond). Check them out – good stuff.

Speaking of Dimitri, his blogging has really tailed off over the past year or so. Too bad.

Yes, it is. He’s a guy who makes you think as opposed to feel (though no doubt some folks have such a visceral reaction to him on principle that they have trouble thinking clearly.)
