Civil War 150 Round-up

There’s been a lot of activity over on our Civil War 150 blog recently. I thought I’d mention a few of the highlights here, since I suspect that not all of the readers of this blog follow the other blog on a regular basis.

There have been new additions to our First Wednesdays project:

  1. February: the Peace Conference and Fort Caswell
  2. March: the Arkansas Resolutions and Hardship
  3. April: Gov. Ellis reply and the Faison Letter
  4. May: Secession
  5. June: Henry Lawson Wyatt

Video from parts of the symposium “Contested Past: Memories and Legacies of the Civil War: A Conference to Commemorate the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War in North Carolina” (the first of three North Carolina Civil War Sesquicentennial conferences) is now available. See this blog post for a list of YouTube videos available via the Dept. of Cultural Resources.

In “The Presentation, the newspaper, and the TV show” blog posts,  my coworker Chris writes about tracking down the H. A. Sledge testament – see Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.
