Welcome to my personal website. It’s hard to believe that I have been blogging here at Civil War Memory for over ten years. In addition to the blog you can explore my work as a historian, educator and advocate for professional development for history teachers. If you love American history...
"In this stunning and well-researched book, Kevin Levin catches the new waves of the study of memory, black soldiers, and the darker underside of the Civil War as well as anyone has. Levin is both superb scholar and public historian, showing us a piece of the real war that does now get into the books, as well as into site interpretation.” (Review of Remembering the Battle of the Crater: War as Murder)
"Kevin is a veteran member of the Civil War Institute summer conference faculty, and is one of the most versatile speakers in our bullpen. Over the past few years, he’s led breakout sessions on a wide variety of topics, participated in panel discussions on the main stage, and facilitated small-group investigations of primary source materials. Kevin’s programs are extremely popular with our attendees."
“Kevin Levin’s Civil War Memory is an impressive individual blog, with a track record of several years. It commonly offers the best of both military history blogging and history blogging about the broader political, intellectual, and social context of regional conflict.” - (Citation for 2007 Cliopatria Award for Best Individual Blog)
