Updated 10/31/10

Linda Wheeler was first a photographer and then a reporter at The Washington Post for 35 years, retiring in 2003. In 1998, she turned her interest in local history and the Civil War into a column, “A House Divided,” where she explored the impact of the war on the Washington area and followed the construction of the African American Civil War Memorial. The columnist turned blogger lives in the Shenandoah Valley and likes to explore the area looking for traces of Gen. Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson's 1862 Valley Campaign. She has an extensive library of Civil War books with the largest section devoted to Abraham Lincoln.

For those in Wisconsin this weekend, October 11-12, there is a great little civil war reenactment at the Norskedalen Nature & Heritage Center, about 15 miles southeast of La Crosse, WI. Norskedalen is an original 1860s Norwegian farmstead -- the barn was built by a returning civil war veteran. The event is hosted by Company B, 2nd Wisconsin Civil War Reenactors (Iron Brigade.) Well worth attending.
