From the Ashes…

Welcome to the blog formerly known as Civil War Literature. Last fall, a major database failure erased a couple hundred posts on the subject of Civil War fiction, poetry, song, film, and the like. The collapse corresponded with my family’s move across the city of Erie, and so I decided to let the rubble settle for a few months.

Over the next few weeks, I hope to restore the site as best I can. I will archive those posts from “the old days” that I was able to salvage. New posts will arrive as and when I have something interesting (or at least coherent) to say. In keeping with the site’s broad URL, the new posts will probably vary in subject. The literature of the war will remain an important interest of the site, but other topics will be addressed as well.

Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to restore the site, or at least to clean up the debris.

    Craig,

    I have been subscribing to your blog in Google Reader. I just checked and your posts go back to the very beginning. If you try to subscribe to your blog’s RSS feed using Google Reader, you should be able to retrieve everything exactly as it was before.

    Hi Brett:

    It’s good to hear from you, and I appreciate the tip. Yes, the old posts are right there on Google Reader: all 224 of them. Importing them may take a while, but I’ll try to do it a few at a time.

    You always gave me good advice in the past, and now you’re up to it again. Thanks!

    Welcome back! I was worried your blog would be gone forever.

    Would recreating past posts make you a Civil War Literature reenactor?

    Glad to see you back again. I’ve popped in, now and then, hoping to see things back up. How is your book on Civil War literature coming along?

    Craig,

    You’re welcome! I’ve struggled with getting my old American Civil War Gaming & Reading posts over to TOCWOC (only three or four months to go!), so I know how frustrating this type of thing can be.
