Please take a look at a new blog that recently premiered on the blogosphere called The Recent Unpleasantness.
The author is Kyle Wichtendahl. I have known Kyle for years and can attest to his lifelong interest in the the Civil War. Kyle is a devoted researcher and reenactor. In his own words, Kyle’s objective here is to “attempt to follow the events of the conflict as they unfolded on a daily basis, 150 years to the date. It is not intended as an authoritative or highly academic work, but as a personal exercise. I hope that examining occurrences in real time can lend a perspective that is enlightening and helpful in developing a more intimate connection to the people and events that rocked and restored the American Republic.”
Kyle’s first post focuses on the secession of Georgia from the Union. I know Kyle’s posts will be informative and thought provoking to everyone who has an interest in Civil War history.
I wish him well in this endeavor and have added his blog to my favorites list.
