We had another great week here at Emerging Civil War. If you have not had a chance to catch up on our recent posts. do so soon. We have more new content going up this week.
In the past week, we had two posts by Kristopher White looking at the books of Little Round Top as well as an excerpt from his and Chris Mackowski’s book The Last Days of Stonewall Jackson. The excerpt explored the fate of Stonewall Jackson’s left arm.
Chris Mackowski also posted two new articles. Chris looked at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House and the engineering evolution of trench warfare. Chris also tackled the what-if’s of Stonewall Jackson’s wounding at the Battle of Chancellorsville. There is more to come from Chris on the what-if’s of Jackson’s wounding, so stop back.
Steward Henderson began a series on the United States Colored Troops in the war. Steward will explore more of this topic in coming weeks.
Two guest authors stopped by this week. Kathleen Logothetis examined the contributions of the State of California to the war. Specifically, Kathleen looked at the “Philadelphia Brigade” and Senator Edward Baker’s influence on the war in the east. We hope to hear more from Kathleen soon.
James Price also authored a short guest post. James is the of the new book The Battle of New Market Heights, covering the September 1864 battle near Richmond.
We also reviewed the book The Civil War: A Visual History. It is a great book with rare photos and sketches of the war.
