Battlefield park blogging

Ignoring the huge body of western theater history and analysis for a second and just looking at the sesquicentennial-eve state of the Civil War blogosphere, whatever one's opinion of which major theater was the most decisive, it sure appears that the phenomenon of battlefield blogging by park historians, rangers, or anyone acting in an official (or semi-official) capacity is entirely eastern.  Maybe the NPS should sent Ranger Mannie and historians Hennessy, et al out west to proselytize among their brethren.

    When I went to Antietam last year I walked in the visitors center and gawked, "Look, there's Ranger Mannie!"

    Really nice guy, though.
