In addition to the articles below, I have, beginning in February 2014, been blogging extensively on Mississippi/Southern history, primarily on Reconstruction, the settings for my more recent novels, Camellia Creek and its sequel Honors Banner. I am unabashedly pro-Southern in my treatment of the period and my disdain for the Congress/central government and their supporters of that period who sounded the death knoll of our Founders Republic. If interested, visit Loblolly Log and scroll through the articles. By the very nature of the blog, the more recent ones are farther forward in history, making the history read backwards, but I do have some links that will take the reader back to the beginning (for example my series on James L. Alcorn), from which point he/she can move forward.
