Old Friends


Today was Michigan Day at Antietam and I got to visit with an old and good friend from Grand Rapids, Bruce Butgereit.  Anything I've ever learned about cutting through "red tape" I learned from Bruce.  He knows how to get things done.

More of the same


Here is another reminder of the enormous gulf between writing about history and making history.

Richard Slotkin's publisher asked me to use this blog as a platform to review the latest offering by that historian - The Long Road to Antietam

I declined.

I defer to my friend and fellow-ranger, Dan Vermilya who conveys my thinking entirely.
Read his review here.
