Someone recently sent me a link to a popular Civil War blog where the host made this comment:
. . . “activist historians,” a term coined by a few unhappy right-of-center blogger. . .I really don't know who coined the term originally. I suspect this blogger may have had me in mind when posting. In any event, I cannot take credit. I started using the term here because another Civil War blogger once used it in a comment on his blog to describe himself.
Just wanted to make sure proper credit was given.
