Coming May 2023: The Civil War on the Water: Favorite Stories and Fresh Perspectives from the Historians at Emerging Civil War
Dwight Hughes and Chris Mackowski editors and authors. From Savas Beatie for the Emerging Civil War Tenth Anniversary series.
This volume compiles favorite navy tales and obscure narratives by distinguished public historians of Emerging Civil War in celebration of the organization’s tenth anniversary. From wide oceans to the offshore blockade, coastal beaches and harbors, and heartland rivers, these stories address strategy, tactics, and technology, as well as social and political issues, and personalities great and lowly. The Civil War was principally a land conflict, but it was not only that. Naval operations were not just peripheral or supporting but central to the story and often given superficial coverage in historical accounts.
