Civil War Literature Blog

I don’t keep track of every Civil War related blog as it is simply impossible to do.  The list in my sidebar constitutes the sites that I regularly check out; on occasion I go beyond to additional linked sites to see what’s happening.  I prefer those blogs that force me to think critically about history and related subjects.  On that note I highly recommend Craig A. Warren’s new blog, Civil War Literature.  The first few posts are incredibly thoughtful and focus on Craig’s interest in how fiction captures the past and continues to shape our own perceptions.

Craig teaches at Penn State Erie and is the creator of the Ambrose Bierce Project.  The site also contains an e-Journal which he edits.  I am slated to contribute an essay for the next issue (December 2007) which will explore Ambrose Bierce and Civil War memory.  If you have time check out the journal as the essays are first-rate.

    Hi Kevin,

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, and for spreading word about the new blog! In the near future, I aim to add a post about the December 2007 issue of the ABP Journal. That issue should be a lot of fun for those who follow the blogs, especially as several of the contributors — including you — are familiar names among the internet crowd.
