New Antietam Civil War Blog: Walking the West Woods

by Brett Schulte on April 5, 2009 · 0 comments

While going through the Civil War blogosphere last Wednesday with Google Reader like I usually do, I noticed a new Civil War blog, Walking the West Woods (ht to Jim Rosebruck at South From the North Woods), founded by Jim Buchanan, a volunteer at Antietam National Battlefield.  In only his second post, Jim already has something up on Edwin Sumner’s actions at Antietam which greatly intrigues me.  In my review of Marion Armstrong’s book Unfurl Those Colors: McClellan, Sumner, and the Second Army Corps in the Antietam Campaign, I was not convinced by Mr. Armstrong’s theories about Edwin Sumner’s actions on the field at Antietam.  Jim, on the other, was more convinced than I was, and he teases readers with mention of more posts to come on this subject.  I’ve added Walking the West Woods to my Civil War blogroll.  Please go check it out!
