Meanwhile, back in the history department
So anyway, I just finished my first online class, which also happened to be the one required class of the masters program.
Since there are six weeks left in the current semester and I have no homework, I'm starting my spring Readings class, which will demand reading eight* books on Custer, including biographies of different periods of his life, topped off by a recent archaeological report on the battle at Little Big Horn.
So far, I've started his autobiography, and concluded he's kind of a dick. Hopefully the Indians will get him at some point.
* I have to do reports on 5, but to be able to speak historiographically about them, there are a couple more that will demand some attention.
