In this week’s edition of our 2022 Emerging Civil War Symposium Spotlight, we feature Sean Michael Chick. If you haven’t had the chance to get to know Sean yet, read on to learn more about this dynamic historian. We can’t wait to hear his presentation this year!
Sean Michael Chick graduated from University of New Orleans with a Bachelor of Arts in History and Communications and from Southeastern Louisiana University with a Master of Arts in History. He currently works in New Orleans, leading historic tours of his hometown and helping residents and visitors appreciate the city’s past.
He is also a boardgame designer, concentrating on the period of Western warfare from 1685-1866. His main American Civil War research interests include Shiloh, the Army of Tennessee, New Orleans during the Civil War, P.G.T. Beauregard, the Petersburg Campaign, and Civil War tactics in relation to linear tactics from 1685-1866. His first two books were The Battle of Petersburg, June 15-18, 1864 and Grant’s Left Hook: The Bermuda Hundred Campaign, May 5-June 7, 1864 (which is part of the Emerging Civil War Series from Savas Beatie).
