Page: Missouri History Museum, Love letters project

A friend of mine shared this with me and it was too good not to share with you. The Missouri History Place has/will publish a letter a week from a Missouri Union soldier to his fiancée (both natives of Northern Ireland).So we get to watch their Love story (pun intended; the soldier is James Love) slowly unfold.

Sorry, couldnt resist: South Park reenacts the Civil War

This is one reason I love the Civil War Memory blog. One of my favorite shows, South Park, did an episode years ago about a Civil War reenactment. And they get a lot of things right. You can watch the full episode at the link.

From the Civil War Women Blog: Civil War Christmas

From the Civil War Women Blog (which I can zone out for hours reading) comes a blog about celebrating Christmas during the Civil War. Particularly in the South, which was hardest hit economicaly, families used whatever they had to make the holidays happy.

Podcast: Brown's Island Explosion

From the Civil War Center at Tredeger Iron Works in Richmond comes a series of podcasts, including this one about the Brown's Island Laboratory explosion. The Center is an awesome place, btw. I went there about 10 years ago after begging my parents to stop at some Civil War sites on the way home from the beach.

PS. Sorry about the slightly outdated entries that just got posted. Just figuring out the new Blogger app.
