You have probably already figured this out, but just in case you haven't: I travel. A lot. Some trips are to do research, and others to talk and sell books, while a few trips are just for fun. And, I take pictures. Thousands of them. With all of these trips and photos, you would have thought it would not have taken me as long to come up with a way to use them. So, I'm going to start a new series here on the old blog. It is going to be called "Looking for North Carolina's Civil War." Over the next few months and years, I hope to share with you some of the places that I have gone and how they are connected to the War. These places might be forts, battlefields, historic houses, or old cemeteries. Most of the stories will be short. I hope you enjoy. And, if you have any places you think I should visit, please drop me a line and let's chat.
