What’s a nice Google user like you doing at a blog like this?

Annnnnnd the top ten search terms which brought people to this site in 2012 were…

  1. bat creek stone
  2. descendants of famous people
  3. mary surratt movie
  4. past in the present
  5. mary elizabeth winstead
  6. gettysburg visitor center controversy [Still?]
  7. colonial schoolhouse
  8. history apps
  9. lincoln ethan allen story
  10. sotos syndrome [Go figure.]

The recent bumper crop of Lincoln movies has obviously helped bump up my traffic, especially in the past few weeks.  In fact, of the top twelve search terms of the past month, seven involve some combination of “Lincoln” and “Ethan Allen,” so that scene in Spielberg’s movie that I got such a kick out of must have made an impression on a lot of other people, too.
