All Done With Copy Edit Phase

It was a long and somewhat stressful phase,  but I believe I am done with it.   In some cases,  I needed titles of newspaper articles for the bibliography,  which meant digging through the footnotes for the newspaper and date,  then trying to find those articles online.  Fortunately, 1830s and 1840s newspapers are easy to find online now.  Also a nice second verification step for those footnotes.

In a few weeks I will have the galleys to check for typos.  Unlike the old days,  where these were on paper,  the galleys will be PDFs.  Then I have to update all the page number cross-reference (why we cannot use the builtin facility in Word eludes me ), then I get to index it--the least fun part.
