As some of you may be aware, I was away conducting some research at Andersonville National Historic Site as part of the Andersonville Irish Project. It was a really productive trip, and I’m looking forward to sharing some of the results with readers of the site over the coming months. While I was there I delivered a talk and led a cemetery program for the National Park Service, which will be made available on the Andersonville National Historic Site Facebook Page over the coming weeks. I was also delighted to meet up with fellow Civil War historian Sheritta Bitikofer at Andersonville. Many of you may have encountered her work previously over at the Emerging Civil War blog. Sheritta also undertakes Facebook Live programs for the Civil War Round Table of Central Louisiana, and it was great to chat to her about the Andersonville Irish while on the site. If you would like to catch up with our chat you can find it on the Round Table’s Facebook Page by clicking here or on the link below. Those who stay to the end will be rewarded with me battling an Andersonville insect that decided to fly down my throat as I waxed lyrical 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!
