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.

"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."
