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. The primary purpose of the blog, and of the House Divided Civil War Research Engine at Dickinson College, is to provide resources for classroom teachers to explore this period in American history. I've been asked to provide blog posts on the Greek and Roman classics in the education and culture of the period.
Here's my first post. From now on, my posts will be aggregated over in the right sidebar.
