Readers might be interested to know that nominations for the Cliopatra Awards (for history-related blogs) are being accepted throughout the month of November. Cadillacs and steak knives are being handed out for Best Blog, Best Post, Best Series, Best Group Blog, and Most Convincing Exploration of the Asshattery of Victor Davis Hanson. (Okay, I really just invented that last category, but only because I thought there was a chance I might win).
If anyone should feel motivated to click away from this site, I would strongly recommend nominating Rob’s Sunday Battleship Blogging in the “Best Series” category.
You should also also consider the “Forgotten Americans” series over at Alterdestiny. Erik doesn’t have them archived into a single collection yet, but each Tuesday he writes about someone (or some group) whose contributions to the past have been unnecessarily overlooked. Recent entires have included Myles Horton, The Cahokia Peoples, Diane Nash, James H. Carleton, and Philip Vera Cruz. They’re all worth reading and nominating.
