3157 Attention Civil War Buffs!

Thursday, November 11, 2010

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
-- Thomas Edison --


The NY Times is doing a series on the civil war, started October 30, 2010, with the news of October 31, 1860. I got the impression from the introduction that there would be a weekly roundup of news articles from the New York Times and other papers from that week 150 years ago, with occasional essays, so I signed up for the RSS feeds through Google Reader - but it seems like some days I'm getting one, two, or three updates per day. Well, they're short, and so far fascinating. I am not a Civil War buff, but I'm enjoying the analysis.

If you are interested, the series starts just before the election, here:
