ECW Week in Review Sept. 3-10

The first full week of September saw a lot of activity at Emerging Civil War. We had posts in two of our ongoing series along with a number of other pieces. You may read each post by clicking the link below.

Kevin Pawlak continued his series “Voices from the Maryland Campaign”.  In observance, a primary account will be posted each evening for the month of September. You may get caught up on each one here.

Rob Orrison reflected on his experiences at Harrison Hall, a house in Leesburg used by Robert E. Lee at the outset of the campaign.

Similarly, Dan Davis wrote about the experiences of a New England cavalry regiment during the campaign.

Staying with the mounted theme, Eric J. Wittenberg offered his thoughts on the re-release of his bookUnion Cavalry Comes of Age: Hartwood Church to Brandy Station, 1863.

Ryan Quint continued his series on Dranesville. He also continued our observance of anniversary of the Mexican War with a piece on Molino del Rey.

Chris Mackowski shared a post on some of the interesting things we encounter on the battlefield.

Readers were also informed of a preservation opportunity related to the Gettysburg Campaign.

Guest author Paige Gibbons-Backus returned with a piece on the Northern Virginia Graffiti Trail. Another guest author, Jon-Erik Gilot, wrote a post on the original Monument controversy.
