Next week Kevin Levin, Keith Harris, and I will be answering questions about blogging at Gettysburg College’s Civil War Institute. Maybe you have a question you would like answered about blogging and the practice of history in the twentieth-first century. Ask it in the comments section, and we’ll see what we can do.
How has the increasing digitization of archival collections affected research both for the better and the worse?
Hi, no question. Planning on sitting in on your and Keith’s discussion on Civil War blogging.
So … err … Ohio 150 … think you guys will ever get a Sherman or McPherson statue in the Vicksburg National Military Park? Sherman Circle is particularly underwhelming, being a circle with almost no statuary. It seems a pretty sad tribute to the most bombastic actor in the play.

Online history courses..
What role could blogs support?
Student, instructor, support
What blogging tools would need to be added to current capabilities?
