John Coski and I wrote up a reading list for the participants of this past weekend’s Civil War memory conference. The list is not meant to be exhaustive, but as a place to start. That said, I think it’s safe to say that one could occupy a substantial amount of time with the studies on this list. Feel free to suggest additional titles if you believe there to be any glaring omissions.

"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."
