I think Civil War Memory

When the American Civil War is on the History Channel I switch off as the few few photons leave the screen. Kevin Levin's blog in contrast is something which is intelligent and I can enjoy reading.

I am pleased to nominate David Kaiser's insightful blog History Unfolding ( as the Best Individual Blog 2007 Cliopatria Awards. His blog discusses long-term trends in American foreign and domestic policies as they relate to specific recent events. In particular, I would like to cite the thorough and original research presented in the blog, such as his analysis of General David Petraeus's dissertation and the implications for the Iraq war.

Dear Cliopatria's Selection Committee,

Plese consider Kevin Levin's Civil War Memory for best individual weblog (url:

What I like about Mr. Levin's work is that, in addition to being on target with regard to Civil War and memory, he also ranges into teaching issues, popular culture, and philosophical issues about the field. While not possessing a doctorate in history (so far as I know), he acts like a doctorate in that he thinks philosophically about his topic.

Let's encourage Kevin to maintain his high quality blogging by giving him this award.

Some great ones out there. I'd like to nominate Kevin Levin's Civil War Memory

J. L. Bell's Boston 1775

and my own Walking the Berkshires, more a history blog than any other single thing...

Regards, Tim

Both thoroughly deserving.

Lisa Pease's Real History Blog. While I often disagree with her conclusions, Pease's research (focusing on theories of 1960's assassinations) is always incredibly exhaustive. She's that rare conspiracy theorist whose impeccable reasoning makes you constantly reevaluate your own scholarship.
