The Civil War Blogosphere

Posted on March 19, 2008 by


I want to pause briefly this morning to say “thanks!” to those who have linked to this blog. By doing so, they inspire me to continue in this very interesting practice. Only a month old (as of 17 March), this blog was created as a project for my graduate course in hypertext theory. While the posts remain close to what I enjoy the most (Civil War history, of course), I greatly enjoy this new platform for historical expression (all-in-all, part of the point for my taking-on a second graduate degree with a focus on the potential that the Web offers). So, again, thanks go out to Kevin Levin at Civil War Memory, Brad Schulte at TOCWOC, all those at Civil Warriors, Harry Smeltzer at Bull Runnings, and Eric Wittenberg at Rantings of a Civil War Historian. As you can see, all are linked in my blogroll as I also enjoy their blogs. Thanks also to Harry Smeltzer for being the first to note the history behind my blogname.

On another note, Ethan Rafuse at Civil Warriors has beaten me to the punch. I was contemplating putting on a link to this Bugs Bunny cartoon just last week. It is one of my favorites!
