New Year’s Resolution

It is that time of year again! Here is my New Year’s resolution: To make sure that the next meeting of the Symposium on Cryptological History features a panel on the Civil War codes.

The American Historical Association’s Zoë Jackson reports on this year meeting in the latest issue of the Perspectives:

“the two-day symposium reflects a greater truth about intelligence work: it is deeply indebted to the work of the code breakers who came before, and that cryptologic history should inform intelligence work being done today.”

It is about time that our good friends the cipher men of the United States Military Telegraph get the recognition they so obviously deserve!

Happy New Year!
