It’s the start of “the Civil War season”—during the war, the armies started their spring campaigns, and for students of the war today, people start visiting the battlefields in earnest. The weather is the trigger for both, of course. In this month’s Emerging Civil War newsletter, Editor-in-Chief Chris Mackowski offers some thoughts on the meaning of spring as seen through this lens.
This month’s newsletter, which is now available, also highlights:
- a slew of activity from our contributors in a lengthy “News & Notes” section
- the new Emerging Civil War Series book from Steve Davis
- upcoming events, including the Fourth Annual Emerging Civil War Symposium at Stevenson Ridge
Our “10 Questions” feature this month picks the brain of Dan Welch.
Last month’s newsletter featured a photo of the arch at Vicksburg National Military Park. Can you guess where this month’s photo was taken?
