We realize it’s already June, but if you’ve not had the chance to check out ECW’s May newsletter, it’s still available. It came out earlier this week, but as you’ve been able to tell by a look back at this week’s offerings on the blog, it has been a busy, busy week here at ECW, so it’s been hard to find a time to make a plug.
Most importantly, we’re asking for help from our readers with a short survey we’re doing as part of our ongoing efforts to better serve you. If you have a few minutes to take the survey, you can find it here.
And you can read the rest of the newsletter here. Inside, you’ll find all sorts of great stuff:
- 10 Questions with Dan Davis, who talks a bit about Union cavalry and some of his current projects
- Chris Kolakowski offers this month’s “Behind the Scenes,” sharing a few insights into the process of writing books
- The ECW Bookshelf touts a new release in the Emerging Civil War Series, Battle Above the Clouds: Raising the Siege of Chattanooga and the Battle of Lookout Mountain by Dave Powell, the first in a two-part look at the Chattanooga campaign
Usually, we ask our readers if they can identify the photo we use for each month’s newsletter. Last month, we featured an image from Chattanooga National Cemetery, with Lookout Mountain standing in the far horizon.
This month’s photo is probably no surprise. After all, we’ve shown off enough photos from the annual Memorial Day luminaria at Fredericksburg National Cemetery (see here and here, for instance–plus our Facebook page). The specific photo came from 2013, when the full moon rose above the ridge of the cemetery, drawing a collective gasp from everyone at the event!
Remember, if you think you should be getting ECW’s newsletter but you’re not, check your junk mail or your spam filter. Of course, we don’t think we’re junk, but your computer might think otherwise! And if you’re not signed up for the newsletter, what are you waiting for? There’s a “subscribe” button at the top of each issue, so be sure to get yourself added to the mailing list (please!).
