Readers Roundtable Meeting

Reader's Roundtable is tomorrow, Saturday, June 2 at 2 p.m. We'll be discussing the book Confederates in the Attic. Until then, here are a few websites you can visit.

Farbs, Fireants, and Catfish Whiskers
This is a humorous "diary of the deep south" written by Tony Horwitz in 1998 after the release of Confederates in the Attic. It begins with him and civil wargasm companion Robert Lee Hodge--in full odoriferous uniform flying to a reenactment in Mississippi. There's also a picture of Hodge. I think he looks like the guy on the cover of our book. What do you think?

National Park Service: Civil War Parks
This web page has links to Civil War sites that are now part of the National Park Service. The second picture in this post is Shiloh's Bloody Pond, mentioned in the book. The caption says "This shallow pool offered cool comfort to the suffering wounded during the battle. Their blood stained its water red."

And here are a few websites that I found with information on Civil War Reenactments. There are lots more if you're interested. Just do a Google search.
