I am so charmed by this use of Twitter that I (finally) created a BB user account just so I could post the link to the feed of the participating characters: https://twitter.com/1863Lawrence/qr1863
This link should let you watch the story unfold without any "modern era" tweets interspersed.

In reciprocation, The Harper's Weekly Newspapering & Lithographing Company will be issuing woodprints of their review of Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs.
(Seriously though, this is pretty cool.)

I'm only about 30 miles away from Lawrence at the moment. They're having some different events during the day, so I may visit as well as following the feed.
@slowglowing You could also check out their website, they have the updated feeds as well as other resources.

So many accounts were cruelly lost this day.

Including @Horse1863, which is just tragic.

By August 1863 the war had been going on for 2 years. Gettysburg was over, Vicksburg had fallen, and the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed.
Lawrence was hardly one of the "early battles."
