Changes to This Mighty Scourge

As my regular readers may have noticed, I have changed the look and feel of This Mighty Scourge. One of the nice things about using the WordPress blog publishing client is the many different themes and plug-ins available. I have switched my theme to the more up-to-date Graphene theme. My primary reason for this change, besides a desire to have a new look, is to make the blog easier to navigate. I hope you like the change.

Additionally, I have changed my blog’s security and registration settings.  Starting today, you will no longer need to register for a WordPress.com account to make comments. With the effectiveness of my spam software, Akismet, I am allowing comments to immediately post without moderation.

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.

    Great look ! I enjoy your website very much and especially the book reviews. I have a small library at home about four hundred or so. I’m slowly collecting all of the” Official Records of the War of the Rebellion” It is great that alot of the current writers use original sources from the Civil War era. Your positive reviews of these books makes it much easier for me to choose great books. One other note , my wife bought me the “Nook” from Barnes and Noble. I have downloaded about 230 books and manuscripts wrtitten before 1923. What a treasure! So many overlooked sources of first hand knowledge of The Civil War.
