One of my hobbies is walking battlefields and that will probably be the major source of posts. Plus I will post about other things that spark my interest, from oddities found while researching to observations on the war.

My mom is sick. I don't want to share specifics but sick enough that she'll spend the next week in the hospital. So my thoughts are not with the Civil War right now. I'll blog again when things are looking up and my mind can focus once again. Not sure when that'll be but I'll post here next Monday if its gonna be two weeks away from the blog.
I am a Civil War nut. I graduated from the University of Colorado-Denver in 2001 with a BA in History. I'm always searching for more knowledge. I buy a ton of books, though space constraints have limited me of late, and I also download a ton of books. I'm always planning battlefield treks as I think these are important to really understanding a battle. Reading only does so much, walking the fields fills in the rest. And when I'm on a battlefield I really walk it. I like to go someplace and take a week to walk everything, get a feel for everything, and take a ton of pictures.
