“Franklin County (Pennsylvania) and the Civil War”
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the United States Civil War, Franklin County History, the journal of the Franklin County Historical Society--Kittochtinny, is planning a Special Issue on “Franklin County (Pennsylvania) and the Civil War.” This issue seeks to publish historical articles or notes addressing new areas of research or reviewing what has been written and published in the past on the impact of the Civil War on Franklin County. Also welcomed are previously unpublished original historical documents edited for publication.
Articles on all aspects of the impact of the Civil War on Franklin County will be considered, including pieces addressing the following topics:
--The Confederate invasions of Franklin County, Pennsylvania
--The stories of individual soldiers or regiments mustered from Franklin County communities
--The experience of African Americans civilians and soldiers during the Civil War era
--Life on the Civil War home front in Franklin County
--The wartime role of Franklin County women and children
--Civil War era crafts, medicine, foods, or material culture
--Franklin County politics and politicians during the Civil War era
--The Burning of Chambersburg
--Connections to prewar events, such as John Brown’s Raid and the Underground Railroad
--The impact of the Civil War on postwar life and society in Franklin County
--Memory, remembrance, and commemoration of the Civil War in Franklin County
The above list is meant to be suggestive rather than inclusive. Essays do not need to be county- wide in scope, but may focus on circumstances in communities within Franklin County. Pieces may also address Franklin County’s role in national events, or look at Franklin County history from a comparative perspective.
Submitted essays will be reviewed by the Franklin County Historical Society-Kittochtinny’s Publications Committee. Essays should be no more than 30 typed, double-spaced pages (12, 000 words) including endnotes; shorter works are welcomed. All works should be prepared according to Kate L. Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, 7th edition. (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2007). Electronic submissions are encouraged and should be sent to Ann Hull at email@example.com. If this is not possible, please send six copies of your paper to FCHS-K at 175 East King Street, Chambersburg, PA 17201.
Editorial inquiries about this special issue of the Franklin County Historical Society-Kittochtinny or future issues of Franklin County History may be directed to Ann Hull, FCHS-K, at (717) 264-1667 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
