I have some things to say about the U.S Civil War community but first I am writing a quick message to let everyone know that the blog is open to request for guest posters! If you are interested in being a regular writer on the site or want to just have some of your work appear on the blog once then please let me know! I would be happy to have you!
Abraham Lincoln died on April 15th, 1865. He was shot while sitting in the presidential box of the Ford’s Theater located in Washington while sitting with Mary Todd Lincoln, Clara Harris, and Henry Rathbone. Lincoln was watching a popular comedy play titled Our American Cousin when John Wilkes Booth entered the theater and shot Lincoln.
The Battle of Malvern Hill, also known as the Battle of Poindexter’s Farm, was fought on July 1st, 1862. The battle was the last in a series know as the Seven Days Battle. The Union lost around three-thousand men and the Confederates lost over five-thousand; however, the greatest tragedy was a father’s grief when he realized he shot his own son.
