My Weekly Blog Roundup: April 1 – April 7

8 Apr

Hi again! Here’s my weekly blog roundup.

On The Virginia Woolf Blog I posted Lytton Strachey’s Failed Marriage Proposal to Virginia Woolf which describes when Virginia’s friend Lytton decided to propose to her in 1909 only to retract the offer the next day.

On Civil War Days I posted The Glowing Wounds of the Battle of Shiloh which discusses the wounded soldiers at the Battle of Shiloh and how as they lay in the mud awaiting medical attention their wounds began to glow in the dark.

On History of Massachusetts I posted The French King Who Lived Above the Union Oyster House which discusses when Louis Philippe I, who was a prince at the time but would later become King of France in 1830, lived in exile in Boston in 1797.

I hear that my evil British twin Rebekah Brooks will be making an appearance at the Levison Inquiry either late this month or sometime in May. It will be interesting to see what comes of that and I will be watching it very closely.
