What I really like about the blog is going through the archives. This is not a well blogged period of American history. Mark's blog fills a very large gap and as a result it meets a rather large need. As Mark is also a member of SHEAR (Society for Historians of the Early Republic) http://www.shear.org/ the blog also has some good information about its activities and work. The result is an informative blog and platform for sharing Mark's work. With the relative dearth of blogs covering this period, Mark's blog stands out.
