It’s hard to believe I haven’t posted anything for over four years, when so much has happened! I loved my time as Associate Director of the Imaging Research Center, a position I held from January 2017 to August 2020. I spent a lot of time writing and doing strategic planning and working on various aspects of Visualizing Early Baltimore, especially Slave Streets, Free Streets.
In 2018, the memoir that I co-edited was published. The Perfect Scout: A Soldier’s Memoir of the Great March to the Sea and the Campaign of the Carolinas reads like a dime novel, full of adventures and mishaps, and is a great complement to Through the Heart of Dixie.
I’ve been spending the 2020-2021 academic year working on a research project about food and famine in the Civil War-era South.
