Does anyone remember Hannibal Hamlin? such is the lot of Vice-presidents unless their boss is shot or resigns.

There are bound to be times that the schedule will be interrupted (sickness, absence, computer/ISP problems, etc) which could result in past or future days being posted. There also can be a few days, particularly at the beginning, where nothing noteworthy happened. The primary reference to be used is “The Civil War Day by Day AN ALMANAC 1861-1865” by E. B. Long with Barbara Long published in 1971.


Heck Ned, I figured you were getting these from your diary.

Hamlin... I love the VPs! What a memorable bunch!

Aaron Burr the wanted man for murder in New Jersey sitting in the Senate as its President. Richard Johnson having a common law slave wife and raising his mulatto children as his own while VP. John Tyler "taking" the presidency after the death of the President for the first time in US history. Andrew Johnson... hated. And the list goes on...

I wonder if this is the first mention of a "Confederacy"?

I did not realise that Lincoln was a latte drinker, I would have though he would have been more of a double shot expresso man :mrgreen:

I found the Starbucks touch quite a nice one....Very politically correct, covers up the Swinger's Party they actually attended........

Ned,

I am enjoying the day by day account of the American Civil War. Thank you for posting this historical record and your efforts and diligence are to be commended. This is a monumental task for sure. Is it your intention to keep it running until April 2015?

Tim, I'm glad that you're enjoying it. I'm sure that there will be burps along the way, but yes I intend to keep this up until at least April 2015. Even if no one else gets anything out of it, this is an enjoyable and educational task for me. There are going to be days though where I'm sick or my day is too busy or I ask myself "Did I do an ACW post yesterday?" and I'll catch up those days when they happen. I've been here for 11 years now so April 2015 doesn't sound too daunting to me.
