So one might think after reading this story about how the giftshop at Gettysburg National Military Park sells a bobblehead of Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth.
Hat-tip to Bernadette Loeffel-Atkins, who came by this from her friend Sandra Young.
Oh, my … and you thought this year was a nasty one …

One of the most interesting things about the H. W. Brands lecture posted below is his mention of composing American history in haiku. So, dear readers, here’s a chance to employ your creativity. What haiku would you compose about the American Civil War? Remember: a haiku has three lines, with five, seven, and five syllables in order. So, for example, “Black Confederates” is a line in and of itself; so is “Ulysses S. Grant.”
Get to work.
Yet another Grant biographer … 🙂
