I hope you all have had a great summer and, for those of you who are pursuing study or working at an educational institution, I hope this year will be a good one. I wanted to briefly post that I set up a new blog to cover my journey through my Ph.D. program. I decided to keep it separate from this blog because much of the content is unrelated to the Civil War. However, I will cross-post some things here from time to time. I invite you all to check out Doctoral Bliss and learn about the fun times as well as harder times that go with being a Ph.D. student. Rest assured, I will not neglect this blog and will have a couple reviews coming up, as well as Book Blogger Appreciation Week.
