On my drive down here to Florida, I realized I’d be passing through Valdosta, where a long-time reader just moved, and so I stopped by, and was pleased to discover that her beautiful home is at the intersection of Toombs and Gordon streets. Students of Georgia history will smile at this serendipity, but for the rest of you, I’ll tell you that, among other accomplishments, Robert Toombs commanded the troops on the west bank of Antietam Creek overlooking Burnside’s Bridge, while John B. Gordon was wounded four times in the same battle.

Saturday night, on The Other Podcast with John Hoge, our long-time reader expressed concern that I’d vanished because I hadn’t updated the blog, but trying to cover this conference has kept me busy. Listen to the podcast and you’ll hear a lot more on this subject.
