With the sesquicentennial commemoration of the U.S. Civil War well underway, I thought I would join in by starting a blog on emancipation. While there are plenty of subjects to focus on when studying this conflict, freedom for the slaves is IMHO the most important. At its heart, slavery caused the Civil War and emancipation was its most important result. So a blog with this focus is much needed.
So in “Civil War Emancipation” I will do the following: 1) commemorate important milestones in emancipation in the Civil War as their 150th anniversary arrives in the sesquicentennial; 2) discuss noteworthy publications on this subject; 3) comment on current events related to the Civil War and emancipation; 4) plus write on whatever else comes to mind that is appropriate.
Please feel free to make comments and suggestions for the Civil War Emancipation blog. I would like it as much as possible to be of service to its readership. And please forgive the mistakes I make because I’m a novice blogger.
