Emerging Civil War
In Spring 2015 I submitted an article to Emerging Civil War blog…little did I know it would be the first of many. The editors liked my perspective and writing style and invited me to contribute more regularly as a guest blogger.
During the autumn, ECW members voted and invited me to join them as a member historian and author. I’m excited to work with this group and explore new ways of sharing inspiring history. (Don’t worry – I’m not closing Gazette665!)

Wishing You A Very Happy 2016…And Looking Forward To Another Great Year Of Historical Research & Writing.
