This week has been a tough one for those of us who study history.
April 14 and 15 mark the 150th anniversary of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.
April 15 marks the 103rd anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic.
Today I also received the news of the passing of a true Civil War scholar; Elizabeth Brown Pryor who passed away in an automobile accident yesterday. You may read more about her and the accident here. The book she is most known for in Civil War circles would be Reading the Man: A Portrait of Robert E. Lee Through His Private Letters.
