Poking around uispeccoll’s Instagram and what do I find? “This 1866 copy of Baked Meats of the Funeral (which is a collection of Civil War related things, rather than a melancholy cookbook)” Baked Meats of the Funeral. My coworkers must think I’m crazy because I can’t stop laughing.
What a remarkable title. The Internet Archive has it scanned and available full-text:
Baked meats at a funeral: A collection of essays, poems, speeches, histories, and banquets, by Private Miles O’Reilly, New York Volunteer Infantry.

This was really cool. The letters flow down the wall, but you can “catch” them and lift them up.
Found a food truck pop-up hidden behind a crumbling brick facade on Louisville’s Whisky Row.
Dinner is a BBQ sandwich with bread and butter pickles and a locally brewed beer. Sound system is playing David Bowie. Kentucky! I like it.
I’m eating local…Louisville Hot Brown and a flight of bourbons.
They treat you right at #kla14! I’ve been named an honorary colonel of the Commonwealth and gifted this beautiful book of historic Kentucky landscapes.
I’m at a neat #KLA14 session on combining storytelling and technology to improve #infolit instruction. The University of Kentucky’s Beth Fuchs uses these two interesting fremium platforms:
- Storybird, to create picture-book like lessons on research for first-year students.
- PowToon to create amusing, engaging animated videos.
I’ve arrived in Louisville for #kla14! And my room has a huge view of the Ohio River.
