We have a couple pieces of business to pass along to you, including the introduction of two stellar new authors to the regular line up!
First, a quick note that Chris Mackowski appeared on the May 17 edition of Civil War Talk Radio, hosted by Gerry Prokopowicz. Chris talked about the book he and Kris White co-authored on the battle of Fredericksburg, Simply Murder.
But even cooler is the fact that we’re pleased to welcome Edward Alexander and Chris Kolakowski to Emerging Civil War.
Edward Alexander is the Education & Interpretation Specialist at Pamplin Historical Park in Petersburg, Virginia. A 2009 graduate of the University of Illinois, he has also worked with Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Read more about Edward on his author page.
Christopher L. Kolakowski is Director of the General George Patton Museum of Leadership at Fort Knox, KY. He is the author of numerous articles on various aspects of military history, and two books on the Civil War. He lives in Louisville, KY. Read more about Chris on his author page.
Edward is going to be able to bring us some great perspectives from south of the James, and Chris will be able to bolster our offerings on the Western Theater. (Poor Zac Cowsert, as ECW’s version Albert Sydney Johnston, has had to almost single-handedly cover the vast territory of the west; fortunately he’s been far more successful, although just to be safe, we won’t let him go to Shiloh.)
