Emerging Civil War is a community of historians dedicated to furthering the public’s understanding of the Civil War as America’s defining story. Grounded in current scholarship and informed by personal research and individual experience, our historians have worked the front lines and the quiet archives. Topics span the entire Civil War era: the battles, the politics, the personalities, remembrance, and more.
