Twitter Exchange of the Week:

With Taylor Stoermer of Colonial Williamsburg on December 24, 2012:

TS:  I'm going to ask the Virginia assembly to ban the use of Landon Carter, Philip Fithian, or William Byrd II from future history research.

JF: I agree.  There really is nothing new left to say about Fithian :-)

TS:  Actually, you'd get a grandfather clause, John.

I would also propose that Congress place a ten year ban on the use of Mary Chesnut and James Henry Hammond for antebellum southern history interpretation.
