Last week I was recognized by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for solving a history mystery – that is, successfully researching the true date of the Plankinton statue. While my primary purpose for this blog was to practice using technology to collect and manage historical research, the added benefit is finding others who share an interest in this subject. Not that there are many. Three to be exact. And the curiosity of two of those three led to an interview and this story in the state’s largest newspaper.
