From Mark G.:
Civil Warriors got 64 hits and 151 page views its first day. By contrast, War Historian got less than half that volume on its first day, and in its previous incarnation had been around for nearly a year.
Nearly everyone in the discussion group--the contributors to Civil Warriors all work in the same history department--has accepted the invitation to post on the blog, and most have worked up reasonably informative profiles. But it may take a few days for them to get a moment's leisure to become familiar with the Blogger software and contribute their first entry. In the meantime, I'll keep the momentum going.
Many thanks to three sites that have already linked to us, particularly the lads at Irregular Analyses with their generous expression of good will. Cliopatria has added us to its very helpful--and as of late, more carefully organized--history blog roll. As has Armchair Generalist.
Good for the first trick!, as they used to say in the mid-19th century.
