Last month I gave a talk to the Rhode Island Civil War Round Table in which I offered an assessment of the first full year of the Civil War Sesquicentennial celebrations and commemoration. I decided to work on it a bit more and I am pleased to share it with you in The Atlantic. It looks like I will be writing for The Atlantic on a fairly regular basis as long as my schedule can accommodate it. Last week’s review of the Gingrich novel was a huge success. It led to an interview on public radio, but most importantly, it is connecting me to a much broader audience. Thanks again to Jenni Rothenberg at The Atlantic, who has been an absolute pleasure to work with.
