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.

Hello again! Ready for my weekly blog roundup?

On The Virginia Woolf Blog I posted Virginia Woolf: Witness to the Blitz which describes Virginia’s experiences living under the flight path of German bombers in Rodmell as they took off from occupied Northern France during the London blitz.

On Civil War Days I posted Conjoined Twin Eng Bunker Drafted During the Civil War  which discusses how Eng Bunker came to be drafted by the Union army but his conjoined twin, Chang Bunker, was not.

On History of Massachusetts I posted Faneuil Hall Weathervane Stolen in 1974 which details the odd story about how the grasshopper weather vane on top of Faneuil Hall was stolen in 1974 and hidden in an attempt to possibly hold it for ransom.

I’m incredibly grateful for all the love and positive responses my newest blog, The Virginia Woolf Blog, has been receiving lately. Virginia is definitely one of my most favorite people to write about and I’m thrilled everyone is enjoying reading about her. I look forward to bringing you more interesting stories about Virginia and her life.
