Article on Hanging Rock

Recently, I described my work of the past year, but in so doing, I omitted one subject. Last Spring I spent some time turning my multiple blog posts on the battle of Hanging Rock, South Carolina, into the kind of article that could be submitted for publication in a periodical. This evening I placed a draft version of that article online, and you can find it here.

The article is intended to be a concise description of the battle of Hanging Rock. It is also a bit more polished than my usual writing. However, you won't much that's new if you've already read my past posts on this topic.

I'm not sure if I will do anything with the article or not. For one thing, the article desperately needs more and better illustrations, but I haven't taken the time to develop those skills. If it should at some point get published (after further refinements), I'll mention it on this blog.


  1. Which journal were you looking to get it published in? used to be nice but they seem to have stopped publishing.

  2. That would have been a natural outlet. About the same time that they stopped publishing, this group started a magazine:

    And this group runs a magazine also:

    I suspect there are other outlets, too.

  3. Have you considered one of the glossy gaming magazines or something such as Military Illustrated or Military History who have accss to large picture libraries? To be honest your blog is better than some of the nonsense that gets published.

  4. Hi, Thomas. I hadn't considered those outlets and I appreciate the suggestions. Thank you also for kind words.
