Journal of a graduate student in military history and the American Civil War
I have a son.
And so, I mourn the loss of this son.
I only knew Jason Shay through the blogosphere and his posts on through amber lenses.
He was killed in action on September 3rd at the age of 22.
Alex Horton, a fellow soldier and blogger, has posted a very fitting tribute here.
Welcome! My name is Rene Tyree and I am a graduate student in military history with focus on the Civil War. I've designed the blog to keep the mass of information coming from my coursework, book reviews, and research organized and to plug into the rich conversations in the blogosphere on this topic.
