Here is an interesting article about South Carolina’s plans to commemorate the Civil War Sesquicentennial. The article features Rodger Stroup, director of the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, who seems to be in charge of eliciting ideas from the community. If South Carolina can get beyond the silliness of how to refer to the war than there is a very good chance that something substantial will result.

"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."
