Cosmic America: Office Hours from Joshua Tree National Park

Greetings Cosmic Americans!

So here it is - the long awaited return to Office Hours. I have a growing list of questions that I have been saving so be sure and check in all the time - you will get an answer (that you may or may not agree with). For this [caption id="attachment_1586" align="alignright" width="150" caption="Loyal Unionist Joshua Tree inhabitant.

Thanks Tim for your question on the Emancipation Proclamation! I hope you like the scenery :)

And - I would love your feedback. Office Hours is taking on a bit of a new flavor...with a theme song (Gram Parsons) and an intro video and everything. It's sort of like my own two-minute TV show. Maybe I should pitch it to one of those cable channels. Who knows? The History Channel could use a few shows that dealt with...I don't know....history.



  1. Good basic answer to the question and great scenery at Joshua Tree. I'd love to be there myself but I have a Civil War roundtable meeting to attend.

    Regarding California regiments in the ACW, although several were involved in minor activities in the far west, the most famous "California Regiments" were actually from Pennsylvania.

  2. Thanks Greg - I did a little entry on the California Regiment at Gettysburg a while back

    And I tell you...Joshua Tree is one of my favorite places ever. Have a great roundtable!

  3. Office Hours-great idea. I usually just sit around by myself during OH!
