Here is my latest over at Substack. Another reason to move over there is that Twitter will no longer automatically post WordPress articles to their feed.
Please join me there and while there subscribe to my new site with a free or paid subscription. Founding members will receive an inscribed copy of my book, Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory: Religion and the Politics of Race in the Civil War Era and Beyond.
Thank you for your many years of following me on WordPress. I do appreciate all of you and the friendships I have made here. I will post updates about Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory and my next book here, but I am moving my blogging over to Substack which is a much more flexible platform with the added value of a “notes” feature that functions a lot like Twitter without the nastiness.
Over the summer I hope to also begin a podcast at Substack.
I encourage you to follow me there like you do here, there is a subscription button to do so. Eventually a paid subscription with additional features will be added. The cost will be minimal and when I launch it people who elect to be founding members will receive a signed copy of my book Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory: Religion and the Politics of Race in the Civil War Era and Beyond.
While there check out the sites of Substack writers that I follow or subscribe.

I welcome comments, even those which disagree with my positions and articles. I have done this for years, but recently I have been worn out by some people.
I have just a couple of rules for comments. First, be respectful of me and other commentators. If you are polite and respectful' even if I disagree with you your comment will be posted and I will respond accordingly.
That being said I will not allow people to hijack the comment section to push their religious or ideological views. Unless the comment deals with the meat of the article, don't expect me to allow you to preach, especially if you are a racist, anti-Semetic, or are a homophobe.
Nor will I allow spam comments. Most of those are automatically blocked by Wordpress but some do get through, and deal with them accordingly.
