Hey everyone, welcome to my blog, The Strawfoot. They say that behind every good man is a good woman telling him what to do, and nowhere is it truer than on this blog. My wife, The Hayfoot, was behind me the whole time saying, “Click here. Point there.”
I am a librarian at a college in New York City and a volunteer in the Interpretation Division at Ellis Island National Monument, part of the National Park Service. I hasten to add that the opinions expressed here are mine alone and not those of the various institutions where I render my services.
The primary focus of this blog will be the American Civil War, but I also intend to right about the myriad other passions in my life.
Much (all) of this is new to me. I ask for your patience and thank you for checking in.
