Thanks you to Peggy Dempsey who saw my recent entries about the riots at Pike's Opera House in Cincinnati and forwarded me a link to her blog, containing the daily writings of an eastern Ohio woman during the Civil War. It looks quite fascinating and I look forward to following it. It will be interesting to see what kind of events this lady found noteworthy and the kind of opinions she formed.
