Getting back to blogging!

Rather hectic last couple of weeks on my end between work and other commitments.  So blog writing was lower priority.  But have no fear, I shall return to regular blogging.

First up in my queue are follow up posts in regard to the Charleston Christmas Bombardment.  There’s just a lot of aspects to the actions on that day which serve to illustrate the nature of the war on the Charleston front.  If I were writing for a magazine article, there’s just enough “there” there to make a short article. But examination of the finer details fits better in the blogging format.  Blogging allows for exhaustive exploration, if nothing else.  And I believe everything should be explored completely… at least once.

I’ll also resume the summary statements, picking up with the third quarter (September) of 1863.  I plan to keep with the format, particularly documenting the administrative details for each battery.  That provides us much context which is absent in the raw numbers.

There are a couple of cannon stories in the publishing queue.  Just have to clean them up a bit and make sure all the links are proper.

Fortification Friday will resume as a regular feature.  I left that line of posts with a small cliff hanger.  And that needs to be resolved!

Furthermore, several preservation topics have come to the fore this winter. One of which involves this sort of thing:

Averasboro 1A 112

That’s a solar power site within the American Battlefield Protection Program defined study area for Averasboro.  Is this a sign of things coming to other battlefields?

Stay tuned… more posts are on the way!
