New from the Americanist Independent

Screen Shot 2014-10-14 at 9.29.12 AMAnd a great day it is. I have just now launched the November Issue of The Americanist Independent. And what an issue… Featured this month are two fascinating pieces on the Civil War era by Mary C. Roll and Glenna Mathews, a conversation about innovation in the history classroom with Luke Rosa, and a review of The Field of Lost Shoes by fellow blogger Robert Moore.

In addition to the new issue, there are a few other things happening on the site. I have recently added an Art and Literature section, where creative folks offer their analyses of history through the arts. Up first are three wonderfully executed pieces by Dara Vance with accompanying fictional “letters home” based on her original research of life in 19th century Florida.
