“I’m Harry Smeltzer, host of the Bull Runnings blog since 2006.  I live just outside Pittsburgh, and was born and raised here in Southwestern PA.  I earned an undergraduate degree at The Pennsylvania State University and a graduate degree at the Katz School of the University of Pittsburgh.  Neither degree is in history.  Therefore I don’t call myself a historian,.  I’ve been published in the journal Civil War HistoryThe Civil War Monitor, Civil War Times, and America’s Civil War.  I was a Contributing Writer for America’s Civil War and am a Digital History Advisor for The Civil War Monitor. I am Vice-President of the board of directors of the Save Historic Antietam Foundation.  I’ve presented programs on Bull Run related topics to organizations in six states and the District of Columbia and organize and lead specialized tours of the battlefield of First Bull Run.”
