Those of you who follow this blog regularly know that with the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Campaign, I had an insanely busy spring and summer this year. When you mix in a family wedding in northern Michigan and our annual summer beach vacation, we were gone every weekend but one from early May until the end of July. Every one of those was a driving trip, averaging six hours at a shot. And when I was in town, I still had my professional responsibilities to my clients to fulfill. I also had my Buford at Gettysburg manuscript to complete. In short, all of it just plain wore me out. I’m only just now feeling back to normal again.

That means that I will be posting here with more frequency again. I regret the lack of posts, but there are only so many hours in a day, and only so much energy to go around, and I had reached the limits of what I had left in the tank.

More to come. Stay tuned…..

    Hi ERIC, I am glad your back, I depend on your blogs not only for the civil war scholarship, but the great laughs in between. Ill see you in october for the hagerstown tour,. On the subject of not being able to write about history unless you served, i think mr. washington county john fyre who served, and his famous son and your friend dennis would back you 100 percent , that it is hogwash that people who havent served dont understnd military tactics.. One of the things I always tell people is that your profession has made your writing more enjoyable. It is your attention to detail that seperates you from most others. And the fact that you are a lawyer only pushes your searching to make the story right, you have to dig deeper to prove what your saying is supported by the evidence. It has to makes sense, Your passion for the truth on every subject you become involved with , inspires me to always dig a little deeper , and it always honors the brave men and women, and civilians who gave their life fighting for what they believed in.,Its good to have you back best regards D.

    Mr. Curran,

    Your “comment”–as I am not sure how to describe the irrational and completely irrelevant rant that you posted here–has been deleted.

    Let’s be quite clear about this. My website does not exist for you to pimp whatever your agenda is. Since you claim to have written some sort of a screenplay on your website, I presume that you’re pimping that.

    So, here’s the deal. Either pay for an ad on my site like others do, or take your irrational, wholly irrelevant, and completely unwelcome nonsense elsewhere.

    And, to be quite clear about this: if you disobey my rules again, I promise you that your IP address will be permanently blocked.

    I trust that I have made myself abundantly clear. And so you know, since I pay for this website, I make the rules. When it comes to enforcement of those rules, I am an absolute dictator. There is no right of appeal. If you don’t like those rules, please feel free to never, ever come back. I assure you that you will not be missed.
