History Carnival XXI

History Carnival XXI. The 21st edition of the History Carnival is up. I am happy to say this blog got a mention. If you are looking for a variety of good posts made at history blogs recently, this is a good place to start.

The concept of the History Carnival is described on its homepage at http://historycarnival.blogsome.com/. It notes, "The goal of these carnivals is to provide a regular showcase of the best blogs - well-known and not so well-known - in their fields. If you follow the links above you can get a feel of how they work, but essentially a carnival consists of a list, with editorial comments, of a range of recently-published blog posts (numbering anywhere from 12 to 40+ entries), and most carnivals rotate around a number of hosts, bringing diversity of presentation and different perspectives within the subject theme. Frequencies vary depending on the topic; the History Carnival is published on the 1st and 15th (approximately) of each month."

The host for this edition of the History Carnival is CLEWS The Historic True Crime Blog. It looks like a fine blog. It is described as, "WELCOME to my study of historic true crime. Take a seat, please. They're high-backed and cushioned, as cozy as a first-class Pullman. My chair rests at the intersection of history, journalism, law, and murder, and true crime connoisseur that you are, you'll recognize familiar tales. But I want to tell you some stories you haven't heard before... "

Maybe I should volunteer to be a future host? I'll give this some thought.
