Happy 2017! (Here’s The Plan)


The new year is here! I hope your celebrations have been fun and safe.

This will be a short post, but I wanted to share a couple changes you’re going to see on Gazette665. We are officially starting 3 blog posts per week.

Monday – 1862: In Their Words   Exploring the thoughts, feelings, actions, and consequences of real people caught in the turmoil of civil war, this blog series provides a quote with contextual background regarding the author, location, or event.

Wednesday – 19th Century American Maritime: A New Look at Sailing, Whaling, Lightkeeping, & Blockade Running This blog series will change topics quarterly, covering all listed subjects…and you’ll be surprised how they all tie together! It should be a fun collection of sea-faring articles, and stay tuned for a new fiction publication this year related to the topic. 😉

Friday – Historical Theme of the Month  As we’ve done from the very beginning of Gazette665, Friday blog posts and their topic change each month. January will kick off with The Generals’ Horses: 4 Famous Civil War Steeds. You can find the entire schedule for the year on the event page.

Don’t forget EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION is open for Gazette665’s Civil War History Conference “1862: Searching For Victory”! Full-day conference (lunch included) with great speakers. $40 Register Today!

There are lots of projects in the works, but it wouldn’t be much fun if we gave away all the surprises today…so stay tuned and join us for a fabulous new year.

Best wishes to all an inspired 2017!

Your Historian,

Miss Sarah
