In recognition of the ongoing centennial of the War of 1812, The Bandy Heritage Center for Northwest Georgia is developing a digital encyclopedia project on this often overlooked and understudied episode of American history. While entries will include social, cultural, and economic topics related to the war, most entries will be military or political in nature. Moreover, the project will have a concentration on the war in the American South. This region was the decisive theater of the War of 1812 and the scene of the United States’ greatest military victories. The results of America’s southern triumph would set the tone for the country’s physical, political, economic, and military expansion for the next half-century.
Upon completion, the Bandy Center's War of 1812 encyclopedia will be a readily available resource for both academic and general audiences. We welcome contributions from PhD’s, advanced graduate students, and independent scholars. Depending on the topic, entries will range between 500 and 1,500 words. For a list of available entries, please contact the project coordinator, Robert L. Glaze, at email@example.com. Please attach a brief, C.V., resume, or biography to your email.
The Bandy Heritage Center for Northwest Georgia, believing that a sense of history is fundamental to understanding human experience, collects, preserves, and shares materials from Northwest Georgia's past, so that present and future generations can comprehend more fully their predecessors, their communities, and themselves. Pursuing the highest standards of collection, preservation, presentation, and management, the Bandy Center encourages and assists people of all backgrounds and interests to learn more about Northwest Georgia’s varied history. Through archival collections, exhibits, publications, and educational programs, the Center promotes the rich traditions of the region as an outreach program of Dalton State College.
