I started this blog as a means of sharing some observations on historical figures and places that inspire me. My expertise lies in the antebellum and Civil War eras, and so the majority of my articles focus on that time period. But I would not necessarily characterize this as a “Civil War blog” as I often delve into other centuries–also, at times, into local history and folklore. So, the subject matter of this blog is, you might say, eclectic. Some of the articles fall under the category of “musings” while others take a more academic approach.
Hopefully, others find a bit of historical inspiration in these entries too.
