Memorial Day

I have discovered over the years that my appetite for reading and learning about the Civil War era is pretty much boundless.There's always another angle to explore. I write that shortly after finally finishing Eric Foner's The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery.

Appropriate for today is the belated acknowledgment of the Civil War era African-American roots of this holiday. For more, check here and here. Here's to putting more memory into Memorial Day.
