Greetings Cosmic Americans!
Things are just about to get under way. The first lecture is at 2PM EST: Leadership Issues in High Command at Gettysburg - featuring historian Chuck Teague. I will be there, iPhone and laptop at the ready updating as it goes. Be sure to catch the next lecture today at 7PM EST: The War in 1861 - featuring historian Peter Carmichael. For those of you on Twitter...keep an eye out for hashtag #cwi150. It will be almost like being here yourself...or at least a teaser to get you excited about signing up for next year.
So I am now well fortified with an overly indulgent breakfast from the Lincoln Diner (the unofficial Cosmic America HQ for the week) and I am ready to bring the Civil War Institute conference to you in real time. Enjoy!
The good news is - I have been given a reserved media table to set up shop. I will be blogging, tweeting and Facebooking as the events unfold. And if all goes well and Verizon does not fail me, there will be updates from the battlefield as well. Please feel free to weigh in on anything - I will be sure to forward your questions to whomever you direct them.
