A political scientist by training and study, an amateur historian by interest and earlier considerations, I forward this post, somewhat as continued from previous remarks about Genealogy and History and actually confirmed research, focused upon Eastern Kentucky history during the 1860s.
Welcome to H-Kentucky
The goal of H-Kentucky is to create an online collaborative environment to facilitate communication and the exchange or scholarly and pedagogical ideas among teachers, researchers, scholars, advanced students, and related professionals (e.g. local historians, librarians, archivists, genealogists), all in an open, democratic, respectful and non-partisan manner. H-Kentucky especially welcomes those who are interested in Kentucky, as well as those in any history/humanities field who live and/or work in Kentucky.
