My Weekly Blog Roundup: August 12 – August 18

18 Aug

Hi again! Here we go with my weekly blog roundup:

Virginia Stephen and Leonard Woolf in 1912

On The Virginia Woolf Blog I posted Virginia Woolf’s Many Suitors. In this post I discuss the many men who asked for Virginia’s hand in marriage between the years 1909 and 1912.

Castle Thunder

On The Civil War Saga I posted Women Prisoners of War at Castle Thunder. In this post I discuss the Confederate prison, Castle Thunder in Richmond, and the various women prisoners who served time there.

Henry David Thoreau

On History of Massachusetts I posted Henry David Thoreau: The Woods Burner. In this post I discuss the incident in 1844 when Thoreau accidentally burned down half of the Concord woods, which earned him the nickname the “woods burner” from the local residents.

Also, the Virginia Woolf Blog was named Pinner of the Week on Historypin last week! Check it out here!
