This is where I (John Hennessy) share my thoughts and discoveries as I make my journey through history–as I start to work on what I hope will be a number of post-retirement writing projects (not retired yet). Posts here will tough on the things that are engaging me at the moment, from the the Fredericksburg region, public, history, Manassas, and my work on the Army of the Potomac. I’ll share updates on my projects and perhaps solicit some opinions on some sticky historical subjects.
Dutifully, I must point out that all expressions here are personal and unofficial and are not intended to represent the views of the National Park Service or any other organization. I am simply trying to engage viewers in what I think are some pretty interesting conversations and debates about matters of history, memory, and interpretation.
