ECW Week in Review May 20-27

We’ve had another busy week at Emerging Civil War. Our authors continue to produce great content as we approach Memorial Day and have an opportunity to ponder the sacrifices made for our freedoms. Due to recent weather, we were forced to reschedule our pop up tour for May 26 to July 22. You may sign up for the tour by making a donation here. Spaces also remain available for our August Symposium. You may register by clicking here. You may click on the links below to read each post.

Dan Vermilya, the author of the most recent release in the Emerging Civil War Series, That Field of Blood: The Battle of Antietam, September 17, 1862, was interviewed by ECW Correspondent Sean Youngs.
