A thought provoking collection of essays on the complicated second American revolution that was the American Civil War and the startling reversals that took place during the counterrevolution not ten years later. McPherson’s essays are masterful.
For more…see the post Cogitating on Abraham Lincoln as “Revolutionary.”
And so I’m learning that pulling together a blog allows me to organize materials and thoughts. This is especially true for all things “school.” Having a virtual place to organize my reading lists – whether required or “desired” is very nice. And why not open a bookstore while I’m at it featuring all of the books I’m reading. Done! with Amazon.com. Pretty easy.
Note to self. Must learn frames and CSS.
A paper is due this weekend. Usually studious, and cognizant of the fact that I have a day job, I know I should read during every spare minute and write as I go. Instead, I’ve built this blog site. Enough said.

Cold, wet, lovely fall is finally here. In our globally warmed world, the trees have barely changed color. But we’re to have a frost tonight. Oh for a bowl of Larry’s chili!
To the books…I am as usual behind on my reading. “The Conferederacy as a Revolutionary Experience” by Emory M. Thomas. A paper due by Sunday.
