Reddit is a fairly recent obsession for me, and one of the reasons I love it is special events like their AMAs (“Ask Me Anything”). Tomorrow, James McPherson will be answering Redditors’ questions on the Civil War. If you’ve ever dreamed of asking the professor a question, or in making a ridiculous LOL-joke to him, now is your chance! (Note that you will need to create a Reddit account to ask questions.)
AMA Announcement — Dr. James McPherson, author of ‘Battle Cry of Freedom’ (1988) and over a dozen other books on the American Civil War, will be here to answer questions this Friday, Feb. 28th, starting at 1:30PM : AskHistorians.
