History links

The latest History Carnival is up at Respectful Insolence. So is the latest issue of History Now from the Gilder Lehrman Center. It's a great issue on abolitionism and reform. (Full disclosure: one of the articles is by my advisor.)

Speaking of abolitionists, I also cannot resist linking to this story from Minnesota Public Radio. Last month, over one hundred of William Lloyd Garrison's descendants descended on Boston to discuss their bold and balding forbear, eat a birthday cake with Garrison's picture on it, and photograph each other's hands. (You'll have to click to find out why. Listening to the audio is best.)
