Craig Swain’s latest post on his great blog “To the Sound of the Guns” reminded me that it is time to get back to blogging myself. By the way, he was gracious enough to mention this blog in his post (Thanks!).
With the holiday season, I took a break from a couple of postings just to recharge a little bit, but I didn’t realize it had been one month since my last post. Definitely time to get back to “work”.
Today’s post really is a “Coming Attractions” post; a more substantial post will appear this weekend. Some upcoming topics for discussion include:
Chancellorsville (yes, I have avoided the “C” word as much as possible, but it is inevitable)
More on Franz Sigel and the winter of 1862/63.
A return to regimental histories with the 68th New York and the 153rd Pennsylvania Infantry regiments being next in line (completing von Gilsa’s brigade at Gettysburg).
More letters from the Library of Congress, of course, especially to/from Carl Schurz.
The 150th anniversary of Cross Keys.
(and that’s just for the first half of the year)
As most readers should come to expect, these posts may be interrupted from time to time with other Civil War posts that do not directly relate to the 11th Corps. Look for the next post this weekend!
