Return from a Hiatus

So.....  Yes, I've been very, very lethargic about updating this blog, but as my New Year's Resolution for 2012, I think I'm going to try to post on a regular basis again.

Dr. Ira D. Gruber, professor emeritus of history at Rice University, has reviewed West Pointers and the Civil War in the December 2011 issue of the Journal of the Civil War Era.  He describes it as "forceful and provocative," and "certainly worth considering."  Although he thinks I overstate the importance of West Point graduates, I will take "forceful and provocative" as a compliment.  I certainly appreciate the fair review, which is all any author can ask.
