As is our custom at this time of year, we’re going to do our best “Kasey Kasem” impersonation and count down our top ten most-rest post written during the last year.
As we’ve explained in the past: “This isn’t especially scientific, of course. We don’t crunch numbers and adjust for variables. Posts that go up later in the year end up at a numerical disadvantage because they just don’t have the time to accumulate views the way posts do from earlier in the year. That said, it’s still fun to look back at some of the great work our authors have done this year.”
Coming in this year at #10 is a post from April 22, 2021, written by Frank Jastzembski: “Civil War Hero Cuts His Throat”: Suicide Among Union Brevet Brigadier Generals and Colonels
Frank has done a lot of insightful work for us at ECW exploring the nature of death and dying and remembering the dead. His posts have shed new light on a dark topic and given us much to think about when it comes to graves, monuments, and memorials to servicemen of both sides.
