ECW Week in Review May 28-June 2

Week in Review-header

We finished off one of our best months ever, readership-wise, this past week, and then finished off the week with some big news from the American Battlefield Trust. So, it would be fair to characterize this week as “BIG.”

Here’s a run-down of the past week at ECW: 

Monday, May 28:

For our Question of the Week, we asked people to talk about a favorite soldier or sailor who deserved special attention for Memorial Day.

We also posted a last call for the Southern California Civil War Conference sponsored by our friends at Gazaette 665 and run by our own Sarah Bierle. ECW’s Dan Davis was one of the speakers.
