Sorry that I’ve not had much time to post this week. Between recovering from last week, traveling this week, and more importantly, working on proofs, there has just not been a lot of time.
Yes, the proofs for North Carolina and the Civil War have arrived. It is a grueling process – fact checking, wishing that I had written something differently, wondering if I really wrote that… There are always little things found here and there. I found yesterday that I had the beginnings of the Bentonville Battlefield Park starting in the 1906s instead of the 1960s. All of this means is that I have had less time for blogging. This will change soon.
Previously, I wrote about Round Table discussions. We’ve now set the date for the Yancey County program – it will be on October 13 at 6:30 pm at the Towncenter in Burnsville. We hope to see you there. A couple of other announcements – the Mitchell County Round Table will be on August 11 at the Spruce Pine Public Library at 6:30 pm. And, on August 27, at the public library in Boone, there will be a mini-symposium entitled Watauga County and the Civil War, with Matt Bumgarner, Chris Hartley, and me, Michael Hardy.
I hope to see you out and about. And, if you would like to see some type of program about the War for Southern Independence in your county, drop me a line. I would love to help.
