Happy Holidays everyone. I haven't had much time to post much in 2015, but I'm still here!
I'm late to the game on this, but if you haven't already listened to this BackStory with the American History Guys show on Confederate symbols, it's absolute must. The show provides easily one of the most thoughtful commentaries on Confederate symbols that I've heard this year.
For those of you unfamiliar with BackStory, it's one of the best public radio programs around. On each show, historians Ed Ayers, Peter Onuf, and Brian Balogh provide three centuries of historical context to the events, debates and issues of our modern world.
