In August, Manassas will be the scene of another anniversary. As a prelude to that second bloody installment in Northern Virginia, fellow Emerging Civil War historian Dan Davis and myself conducted a few battlefield visits. The idea for “Scary Sequel” rose from those visits as we felt that the Battle of Groveton had been overshadowed. We both shared the same sentiment that the ramifications of that fight reverberated through the rest of the war.
We pitched the idea after being contacted by the Civil War Trust and the Hallowed Ground editor Mary Koik. She accepted our proposal and the article came out in their 2012 summer issue. You can also access it online here: http://www.civilwar.org/hallowed-ground-magazine/summer-2012/a-scary-sequel.html
From the Emerging Civil War, Dan, and myself, we would like to thank Mary Koik specifically and everyone with the Civil War Trust for this great opportunity, which we hope will be the first of many joint projects!
