Sorry for the lack of posts on here as of late. I am staying in park housing at Antietam, and do not have internet there. Thus, I have to use internet elsewhere and have not been blogging as much as of late. Expect this trend of fewer posts to continue for the time being, unless things change. I am quite busy with NPS work, working on my Kennesaw Mountain book for the History Press, as well as working my part time job writing history lessons for educationportal.com.
Hope everyone is enjoying the warmer weather that May has brought!
Our Country's Fiery Ordeal
A blog about the American Civil War, written and maintained by historian Daniel J. Vermilya, author of The Battle of Kennesaw Mountain (History Press, 2014) and James Garfield and the Civil War (History Press, 2015)
Dedicated to my great-great-great grandfather, Private Ellwood Rodebaugh, Company D, 106th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, killed at the Battle of Antietam, September 17, 1862.
"And may an Overuling Providence continue to cause good to come out of evil, justice to be done to all men where injustice has long prevailed, and finally, peace, quiet, and harmony to come out of this terrible confrontation and our country's fiery ordeal." -- Albert Champlin, 105th Ohio, Diary entry of June 19, 1864 (Western Reserve Historical Society)
