The Civil War… “through the eyes of my people”

December 31, 2010 by

Just jabbed my friend Harry a little by pointing out that some still refer to the Bull Run battles as the Battles of 1st and 2nd Manassas, respectively. It was all in good fun, and owe a hat tip to Harry for pointing out that there are some quality Civil War stamps on the horizon… […]

…and for Bull Runnings…

I know, Harry… I took these photos three months ago and I’m just now getting around to posting them… but hey… better late than never… :-) As some of you know, this past June, I was down in Savannah, recalling, once again, just what it really means to have humidity. People in Virginia say a […]

Excellent posts for consideration over at Bull Runnings

Talk about adding more interesting stuff to the study… looks like, with the help of a reader, Harry has some interesting posts (here, here, and here) about Northerners in Wheat’s La. Bttn. The matter of the men being impressed for service is interesting. Though August Johnson makes the claim, was he doing this to cover […]

A story about Henry Berry Lowry/Lowrie, “a free man of color” in the Civil War

Some may recall that I mentioned Henry “Dad” Brown in Harry’s Bull Runnings Blog, but I cannot emphasize enough that Brown’s story is actually a reflection of but one element of the “many Souths,” and in fact, the many perspectives of Southern free blacks during the Civil War (again, a part of the reason why […]

When you turn history on… does it return the favor?

Once again… all this chatter about digital history! What’s it all about? Harry has put up an interesting post focusing on a piece written by Robert Frost. He uses it to help explain his interest in the potential for digital history. I get what Harry is saying. Also, consider this… Do we really realize just […]

No moss growing under foot with some of us! If you recall, yesterday I posted about a possible forthcoming wiki. Thanks to Brian at Behind Antietam on the Web, it is a reality. We now have something called the ACWDev Collaboration Wiki. As stated on the wiki intro page, it is a “place for ACW historians and other […]

Doth a Wiki Cometh?

If you haven’t been following it, many of us are all over the board in three different blogs in discussion focused on, more or less, the potential for more dynamic blogging within the practice of digital history (after all, the blog… well, it’s not just for blogging anymore). On this blog, most recently, there has been comment exchange in […]

If you haven’t been in the middle of the chatter yet, check out what some of us have been talking about over at Harry’s Bull Runnings. We write “blogs,” but are they always blogs? Actually, in some cases they don’t meet the definition of a blog (keep in mind, this is but one definition, but generally covers the […]

The State of this Blog

In the wake of the digital history-focused discussions (here and here) of last week, I figured it was time to check the stats for this blog. Though it did not really go active until February 21, 2008, I actually opened the blog site on November 3, 2007. So, though it has been an “active blog” […]

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 […]
