ABC-CLIO is pleased to announce its latest encyclopedia project, which seeks to document and contextualize U.S. and Confederate naval participation in the Civil War (to include sea, riverine, and inland waterways warfare). Essays for the print encyclopedia will also be used for company web sites, workbooks, and handbooks for students and academics alike.
This work is under the general editorship of Dr. Spencer Tucker, formerly the John Briggs Chair of Military History at the Virginia Military Institute, and Senior Fellow of the Military History Institute at ABC-CLIO. Dr. Paul G. Pierpaoli, the associate editor, is a fellow of the Military History Institute at ABC-CLIO. An advisory board of distinguished historians and teachers is also assisting in the endeavor.
Each entry includes general facts and figures, a detailed historical analysis, and further readings. Sample entries begin at the end of this file. Style and content guidelines will be supplied to contributors upon their essay assignments.
