I think I remember something like that from one of my professors...long long ago! I mentioned catering to the casual visitor to a museum and that is crucially important because that is where the dedicated historians come from since the "serious money" is elsewhere. I vividly remember my first visit to Shiloh in 1956 or 57. That visit ignited a lifelong interest in the war. I have a BA in History (from a Yankee school no less) and have studied the war off and on all my life..I am now 61 and my interest is as keen as it was when I was a tow headed boy. I have never made my living as a historian, but the interest and love has always been there.
