A Quick Note about “Shaping Chancellorsville”

We’ve had a couple questions about Chris Mackowski’s series about the history of the Chancellorsville battlefield, “Shaping Chancellorsville,” which he started in late April.

The series has been examining what has and hasn’t been remembered about Chancellorsville as “public memory” over the past 150 years and, specifically, how those memories have been employed over time in the establishment, expansion, and evolution of the Chancellorsville Battlefield.

With the 150th looming large for us, Chris took a break from the series so that we could bring you coverage of Chancellorsville’s sesquicentennial, but he’ll be picking the series back up in early June.

In the meantime, if you need to catch up, you can check out previous installments in our archives.
