New military history research: Assymetric warfare, stone age weapons and the US Civil War

 27 July 2011 - Two insurgents in Iraq with SA-7b and SA-14 MANPADS.

Three articles from Civil War History:

Keith Dickson writes about Douglas Southall Freeman.  Freeman was a well-regarded and widely admired Civil War historian.  Dickson examines Freeman’s strong attachment to the South, Confederate veterans and the leaders of the Confederate Army and how this affected his historical writings. 

Megan L. Bever examines romantic novels written after the Civil War.  Bever notes that many southern women wrote romance novels about relationships between northerners and southerners, stressing intersectional reconciliation while at the same time promoting protection of southern society.

William B. Kuntz writes about the Catholic Press during the Mexican and Civil Wars.  Kuntz notes that both wars were preceded by anti-Catholic politics and that the wars affected these politics.  For example, following Bull Run, a catholic newspaper publisher extolled the patriotism and bravery of Irish Catholics during the battle.
