|"With A Rebel Yell" by Mort Kunstler|
The Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech has just published my 3rd (and likely last), essay for their Essential Civil War Curriculum website.
The Essential Civil War Curriculum is a Sesquicentennial project Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech. It is sponsored by two eminent Civil War scholars and authors, Dr. James I. (Bud) Robertson and Professor William C. (Jack) Davis both Professors at Virginia Tech. The Essential Civil War Curriculum is a sesquicentennial project of the Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech.I must say it has been a privilege to write for this very worthy project. The project's director, Mr. Laurie Woodruff, has been a joy to work with and has been a passionate promoter of Virginia's commemoration of the Civil War Sesquicentennial. He has done a superb job of organizing this effort and the site's topics cover a wide range of subject matter for those interested in this aspect of American history. I strongly recommend readers visit the site for becoming better informed about the War Between the States. With each article, authors recommend additional resources and reading material for a more in-depth study of the specific topic. I think the project and website is one of the best overall resources students (of all ages) could have at their disposal.
My most recent essay is about the Rebel Yell and is titled, The Rebel Yell: The Seething Blast of an Imaginary Hell.
I'd be interested in what readers think of the latest essay. The other two essays I've written are linked below.
