Weeks 4 and 5 and Upcoming!

The last few weeks have been great here at Emerging Civil War. We have been trying to bring a diverse look to the Civil War, and thus far, it has worked out well.

We have welcomed a number of authors to the ranks: Dr. Mike Stevens, the president of the Central Virginia Battlefield Trust; author and historian Drew Pullen; and National Park Service ranger/historian Phil Greenwalt. We are excited to have them join us.

Full-time authors Ashley Whitehead and Steward Henderson have posted their first articles on Rural Plains and Ex-Slave John Washington, respectively.

Daniel Davis and Zac Cowsert have returned with articles on the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry at the Battle of Aldie; and Holly Springs Cemetery and the Shreveport Naval Base. Kristopher White continued his series on the bombardment and looting of Fredericksburg, and Chris Mackowski and Caity Stuart both offered some perspectives on Antietam.

In the coming weeks, we have a number of book reviews and interviews covering the Battle of Ball’s Bluff; The New Gettysburg Campaign Handbook; Inventing Stonewall;and The Civil War; a Visual History.

Our authors are also working on some great new material. We will have posts discussing “Chancellorsville: Lee’s Greatest Victory or Lee’s Greatest Defeat?”; a study of Little Round Top as a military bastion; the Battle of Tom’s Brook; Elmira Prison, and more.

Explore the rest of the site, as well. We are expanding the research center weekly. Our upcoming presentation pages tell you where you may catch one of our authors live. Next month, Kristopher White will be teaching a three-part class on Little Round Top, Devil’s Den, and the Valley of Death.

We hope you have been enjoying the site thus far. Be on the lookout for new authors and topics in the coming weeks. Thanks for stopping by.
