Just another one of my random thoughts. In my current readings of the American Revolution, a great deal of the information is provided by the letters of our founding fathers. These pieces of history are priceless not only b/o the information they provide but by the richness of their prose. In addition, I don't want to exclude those letters written during the cw. There are numerous criticisms of our modern day emails, blogs, tm, etc. However, aren't we writing, composing our thoughts, communicating (as our ancestors did).
In my case, I know I'm doing much more of this than I did in the past when this modern marvel wasn't available.
