“Don’t tell me it’s just a dream….”

“Wake up, don’t tell me it’s just a dream, ’cause when I’ve had enough you’ll hear me say, “Don’t you try to rain on my perfect day….”  Nothing’s standing in my way on this perfect day, nothing can go wrong.   It’s the perfect day, tomorrow’s gonna come too soon… I could stay forever as I am on this perfect day….” –Perfect Day, Hoku

In one of my very first posts here at TO&E, I mentioned James McPherson’s Battlecry of Freedom.

Yesterday, I met him.

I'm only slightly starstruck :P

I’m only slightly starstruck, of course.  

He was kind enough to sign my book as well as take a picture!

Additionally, I had dinner in my beloved dining hall, with several other Civil War historians.  I was pretty excited to share a meal with the same people who’ll be speaking over the next few days!

I was able to reunite with some of my favourite professors, and Civil Warriors I haven’t seen for a few years!

Day One was a success.
