As Lee said, the summer ending has brought a great transition for those of us in the academic world as well as in the Chick-Chatt sphere, so again our apologies for our slumping post count. I do have a number of post ideas that I want to work on in the coming weeks, so I figured some trailers might be in order
Lee and I made a trip to the South Carolina Low Country at the beginning of August which holds some promising post material. One I am particularly excited about is a small church in the village of Cainhoy outside of Charleston which was the scene of a Republican-Democrat clash during the election of 1876. We might even get a couple out of that. Lee could easily throw in a couple about the day we spent in Georgetown on the trail of Co. A 10th So. Ca.
Also, as I have a research seminar coming up this semester, look for some interesting posts about Kentucky politics during and after the war. I can't get too specific as to what I'll have, but I have found some neat stuff in newspapers that I want to write up too.
Bear with us, September should be a productive month!
