Apologies for Lack of Posting

by Fred Ray on January 20, 2019 · 3 comments

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following post is from Fred Ray, a frequent and long time contributor to this blog.  We wish him well in his recovery.


I’m sorry to say that I’ve not posted anything since early November of last year. It’s not because I’ve lost interest or don’t have anything more to say, but rather because I’ve been dealing with some very serious health challenges that have occupied my full attention. I will recover and be back, but it’ll be quite a while and at this point I can’t say when it will be.

It also means that the Blackford project is on indefinite hold, again I can’t say for how long. The second volume, which covers the period from the Gettysburg campaign until the end of the war, is mostly done but still needs some work. So be patient.

Hi Brett,

Sorry to hear about you health. Every best wish for a speedy and full recovery.

I have enjoyed your book reviews.

Best wishes from Down Under

I appreciate the sentiment, but the author of this post is Fred Ray. My health is perfectly fine and I’m still very much active here and at The Siege of Petersburg Online.

G’Day Brett,

Well I misread that, didn’t I? Good news that you are fine health. Please pass my sentiments to Fred, whom I don’t know, but trust he is well on the way to a full recovery.

Thank you for this comprehensive blog.
