I started this blog November of 2015, as a way to get people interested in the Civil War beyond what I describe as "Textbook" history. The more I learn working in Gettysburg and the more people I teach about the civilians of the Civil War, the more I see people just don't care about history anymore.
Now, don't get me wrong, there are those of you reading this right now thinking, "Abbie, what are you talking about? That's why I'm here!" And I would respond that yes, you're crazy, one of the oddballs who actually cares about what General 'So-and-So' did and where, or care about the civilians who lived through it.
And that's completely okay. This is a haven for all us history nerds alike.
But we have a job to do.
