ECW Week in Review Feb. 12-18

It was a busy week here at Emerging Civil War. We had a number of great posts from our authors on Black History Month and Valentine’s Day. You may click on the links below to read each post.

Chris Mackowski shared his experiences on morning jogs at the Chancellorsville battlefield.

In observance of Black History Month, Meg Groeling wrote about Prince Greer and Andrew Jackson Smith. We also dug a piece written by Steward Henderson from our archives titled Black Confederates: Laborers or Soldiers? Guest author Michael Aubrecht returned with a piece on the Bernard Slave Cabins on the Fredericksburg battlefield.

Meg also wrote about Elmer Ellsworth on Valentine’s Day. Sarah Kay Bierle also shared a Union soldier’s letter on Valentine’s Day as did guest author Rob Wilson.

This week’s Symposium Spotlight was on Edward Alexander. Tickets are still available here.

Derek Maxfield reviewed the new biography of Emory Upton.

On Saturday, we shared news on a preservation opportunity in the Western Theater.

Guest author Steve Phan with a continuation of his story on Fort Washington. You may read part one of the piece here.
