Countdown to the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War

Despite, or maybe because of, what I wrote below in the Birthday Bio for Lavinia Murdoch (Bruce) Cresap, I've avoided Civil War histories. I become melancholy just thinking of it.

One week from today will mark the anniversary of the establishment of the Confederate States of America one hundred and fifty years ago.  Perhaps it's time to begin to learn more.  This article is a nice start. Women and literature -- one window in.
