A necessary journey south

Yesterday, I had to take a necessary journey from Michigan to my 95 year old Mom’s home in Richmond , Virginia. I lamented that I was unable to hear yesterday’s lecture and attend yesterday’s on line class. To my great surprise, this a.m., as I picked up the Richmond Times Newspaper, I discovered a daily column – entitled ” From the page of the Daily Dispatch on today’s date in 1862″ . The paper is running a column detailing an article to the corresponding day in 1862 .Content can be gleaned simply by logging on to TimesDispatch.com( search Civil War). Interesting reading

    Yay! Thanks so much for telling us about The Times Dispatch series – today there is enemy movement on the south side of the James River, fyi. This is great to read together with the NYT’s Disunion series http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/category/disunion/ – it also comes in the Twitter variety https://twitter.com/NYTcivilwar/

    Now I can get both sides of the war in (real time) + (150 years.)

    Hope your mother is doing well today.
