|14th Virginia at Pickett's Charge, Gettysburg|
With the Sesquicentennial of the War between the States ramping up these days, a number of 150th blogs are being done, including some by national newspapers. Some of them only use documents and newspapers from the period. Some of them are more editorial in nature. All of them I have found are decidedly one-sided in their orientation -- one particular side.
If you enjoy that historical period, here's a suggestion: One Hundred Fifty Years Ago Today.
It is the fruit of my 28-year interest in the War. Interaction on that blog so far has been disappointing, so I thought I'd let readers on Sunday in the South know about it. If the readership on One Hundred Fifty Years Ago Today does not increase in the next few months, I'll consider putting it aside.
