This Mighty Scourge – Top Ten Articles

It amazes me how well my blog has been received.  It is very humbling to find so many people reading  Having started this blog, in December 2008, it has exceeded my readership expectations every single month.  With April 2009 still not complete, I can safely predict that I will have close 3,000 articles being read.  That is up from 600 in January, and 850 in February.  I have promoted this blog fairly heavily on Facebook, so I know that has contributed to my readership.  Additionally, I am very thankful for fellow bloggers that have promoted to their readers.  There are more blogs than I can list, that have added this blog, to their blog rolls.  Additionally I have close to 90 people that follow my blog on – an application on Facebook.  With all this said, I thought I might let my readers know which articles have been the most popular on  The following articles are my “Top 10.”

About Michael Noirot

I grew up in the Central Illinois farming community, of Dunlap. Growing up, I played sports, tinkered with cars and enjoyed photography. While I did well in school, I did not become passionate about history until my early 30's. I have built a large library, of books on early America, politics and the Civil War. I am an avid reader. Fortunately, I have had plenty of opportunities to travel, over the years, and have been to most of the Civil War battlefields. I work while I travel, so more often than not, I am up, in the middle of the night, to get sunrise pictures, or I will be out until well after dark, exploring Civil War battlefields. I have other hobbies, and passions, that I really enjoy. Number one on the list would be guitar. I play my guitars on a regular basis, and enjoy the Bluegrass, and Contemporary Christian (CCM) genres. I play a style of guitar, called FLATPICKING, where using a flat pick, you play lead solos, similar to the way a fiddle would have been played during the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Laura, my wife, and I also enjoy scuba diving, travel and spending time at our property, in the country. Lastly, we spend as much time with our families, as possible. Thanks for stopping by.
