Before we get to the most-read post from 2018, here’s a look at our top ten most-read posts of all time. Most—but not all—have the benefit of longevity to credit for their appearance in the top ten. For long-time readers of the blog, many of these will be old favorites:

(NOTE: The list excludes “infrastructure” pages like our Symposium page or pages about our books series or speakers list.)

10) In Jumping Broke My Leg: Another Look at the Lincoln Assassination Legend by guest blogger Cal. J. Schoonover (Feb. 26, 2014)

9) Some General Thoughts on Major General George A. Custer by Dan Davis (Aug. 22, 2011)

If you’d like to compare that list to last year’s, here is 2017’s list. Eight of the ten from last year appeared again this year, although they jockeyed for position a bit.
