  1. As a Public History grad student at NC State University I loved this article. I have been reading a lot about fall out from the Gettsyburg Conference and am very curious at the future of Civil War history in the public field.
    I look forward to reading more.

    1. Hi Nathan, thanks for the comment. I’m guessing that you were intending this to be placed on one of my essays on the Gettysburg conference? It was indeed a great conference and it has prompted a lot of discussion about how we interpret the Civil War to public audiences, which is very important. Thanks again for the kind words and for linking to your own blog. I will make sure to go through and check out some of your content.

  2. Nick, I just saw your blog and love it. I have a GGGrandfather, Joseph Poole who was active in the GAR. If you’d email me, maybe I can help you with the Solcum Post in Bloomington.

    1. Hi Randy,

      Thanks so much for the kind words. I’m writing my master’s thesis at IUPUI on the Grand Army of the Republic in Indiana, which should be completed and freely available for download by the summer of 2014. I would love to learn more about the Slocum Post and will send you an email soon!
