The 7th annual Civil War Study Group symposium will be held on the campus of the University of Cincinnati and hosted by Prof. Christopher Phillips of the Department of History.
The theme will be “The Hidden Hand of War” and will feature papers from four historians:
Amy Murrell Taylor, University of Kentucky, "Huts, Tents, Cabins, and Sheds: The Meaning of Shelter in the Civil War's Slave Refugee Camps"
Lesley J. Gordon, University of Akron, "'Remember the Hero': Battlefield Cowardice and Post-Civil War Memory"
Aaron Astor, Maryville College, "'Our relations rendered more cordially fraternal': Sectionalism and the Ohio Valley Summit of January 1860"
J. Michael Rhyne, Urbana University, "'A Blood Stained Sin': Emancipation, Resistance, and Guerrilla Warfare in the Bluegrass, 1863-1865"
As always, the CWSG asks participants to do homework. This year, participants should (re)read and be prepared to discuss Mark Grimsley’s The Hard Hand of War: Union Military Policy Toward Southern Civilians, 1861-1865.
