Re: Is Thomas Livermore Trustworthy?: A Story about Memory, Memoirs, and the Civil War

Hi Dave,

This is a fantastic point. I know from my research on my previous book that the 1860s witnessed the rise of the penny press in Britain and the explosion of newspaper circulations into the hundreds of thousands. My impression is that the leading American papers had even larger circulations during this period.

Thanks for the citations. The more I learn, the more I learn that I have so much left to learn.
