It might be the end of the year, but we’re finishing 2018 strong. It’s been a wonderfully busy holiday week on the ECW Blog! We’re hoping everyone had a Merry Christmas and/or peaceful holidays, and we added some historical good cheer at the beginning of the week.
During the days between Christmas and New Year’s, ECW traditional offers Year in Review and we’re counting down on the most popular blog posts of the year and enjoying the highlights of our 2018. Enjoy the exciting countdown, and we’ll be back with more great history blog posts in the new year – it’s already a schedule full of interesting articles and good surprises!
