Work still progressing on poster

We did not meet this week, but both Tim and I are at various stages of poster development. Tim is starting development on his and I am fairly close to finishing mine. While the semester is coming to an end, as is this course, I hope to continue to work on this site and continue exploring military geography with the goal of building the bibliography into something worthwhile. The updates may become less frequent, but the work hopefully will continue. Look for the posters on this site in the near future. We will also be meeting this coming week and I will update you on that week as well.

A wonderful one on one meeting

Unfortunately, Tim was ill on Tuesday, so Dr. Munski and I met together and I presented him with some of my design ideas for my research poster focusing on military geography in the Civil War. He really liked my ideas and we agreed on one of the designs that we both thought was the best one (I will post it when it is done, but you will have to wait until then). He feels that I am making great progress and I will continue working on the poster, mainly working on written content and citations for the images in the poster. We will not be meeting this week, but I will try and post an update on something, as I either hope to have the poster mostly complete, or have more work on the bibliography complete. Keep watching for updates.

Better late than never

My apologies for the lateness of this update, but I would rather let you know what has happened this last week than skip it. Our meeting went well last Tuesday, as I brought in some works that I have included in the bibliography, as well as showed Tim and Dr. Munski the update on the bibliography. Progress is being made on the research posters and I have several ideas in terms of design for my poster. We will be meeting again in several hours and will let you know what occurs.

Interesting finds in the hunt for sources

While meeting this week, Tim introduced his copy of the manual on Missions Other Than Wars (MOTW), which will factor into our project. I stumbled across a website dealing with military geography and the Civil War, which may go a long way in helping shape the bibliographic project. The website is through the Civil War Center at Louisiana State University and is called “Geography and the Civil War”. In addition to that find, I have added a link on our links page to a publication on military geography called Military Geography: For Professionals and the Public. The Google Group is slowly growing, with the addition of Dr. Hupy and I hope many more will join it. Finally, our site has cracked 100 hits, so thank you for your visits and we hope you will spread the word about this site and our work. Until next time, have a great week.
