We have gone over 500 views for the blog, 501 to be precise, and while this doesn’t exactly make us a monster blog, in my opinion it is worth noting as my goal was to generate some awareness of Civil War Sesquicentennial activity in New England and Western Mass. While much of the traffic is no doubt a result of my posting the link on Facebook, and some of it from search engine activity, a lot of it is from links to a few Civil War blogs, such as Andy Hall’s “Dead Confederates,” Robert Moore’s “Cenantua’sBlog,” and Kevin Levin’s “Civil War Memory,” all of them excellent blogs, which have kindly provided links to our site. I hope there are other local people and organizations who have also either linked to our site or make it a regular stop on their daily reading. If so, please take the time to comment on our posts, let us know what you think, or share information on sesquicentennial activity, events, or monuments of note. Suggestions for things to cover would also be more than welcome.
