The Long Recall Ends

I’m sad to say that the blog “The Long Recall” has decided to end. They had been doing a day by day recall of the news of the day from 150 years ago. It was so interesting to see the Civil War happen in real time that way. It was also interesting to see how partisan and inaccurate the papers were. The blog ended just as the ‘news’ of a ‘Union Victory‘ at First Manassas, or Bull Run if you prefer, was occurring.

To all the people involved in The Long Recall, good job! I’ve really enjoyed your hard work and dedication to such an interesting project. I wish you well in your future endeavors (and selfishly hope it involves work similar to The Long Recall.
