We hope all symposium attendees have returned safely home (or are enjoying an extended trip to visit other historical sites!). Here at Emerging Civil War, we’ve spent the week wrapping up the aftermath of the event…but that doesn’t mean it’s been a slow week on the blog.
You’ll find a couple sets of two-part articles, a post from a new guest author, and other writings of interest in our Week in Review…
