Blogging on Blog Divided
Today I published my first blog post for Blog Divided, a community blog that focuses on the history of the period from 1840 to 1880—the antebellum, Civil War, and Reconstruction periods.

I've been asked to provide blog posts on the Greek and Roman classics in the education and culture of the period.
