In 2005 I began writing research articles for the living history magazine, the Citizen’s Companion.   Since then, I have written articles for the Citizens and Soldiers and Camp Chase Gazette magazines as well as an assortment of newsletters and localized publications. My research looks at changes in mid-nineteenth century society and pieces of material culture. **NEW: Some of these articles are now available via my Google Drive. Click Here**
