There is a touch of November chill in the air but Emerging Civil War remains busy. Our series Battlefield Markers and Monuments came to a conclusion and we also had another series on the experiences of a New York officer at Spotsylvania. We also had a major announcement regarding the Fifth Annual Emerging Civil War Symposium (Early Bird tickets are available here). But before recapping the posts of the week, we would once again like to extend a “thank you” to all of our military veterans.
Chris Mackowski, Todd Arrington, Steward Henderson and guest author Paige Gibbons-Backus all contributed to Battlefield Markers and Monuments. You may catch up on the entire series here, scrolling to he bottom and clicking “Older Posts”. The series concluded last night.
Chris Mackowski also discussed the latest effort to edit and annotate the memoirs of U.S. Grant.
Dan Davis discussed the actions of Wade Hampton at the Battle of Trevilian Station.
Edward Alexander wrote about the wounding of William Ellis at Spotsylvania’s Bloody Angle.
On Wednesday, we provided information on hotel accommodations for next year’s Fifth Annual Emerging Civil Symposium.
We also shared Preservation News regarding the Cattaraugus County Memorial.
