May/June 2013 Issue

The May/June 2013 issue has been sent to the printer. Updated Vicksburg Reunion info is included along with the proposed constitution amendments and standing orders. Our Sesquicentennial series continues with an essay by Ryan S. Walters entitled The Powers of a Usurper, Northern Opposition to Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. Dr. Michael Bradley shares an article on Dr. Rufus Benjamin Weaver who worked tirelessly to return Confederate bodies in Gettysburg back home. Of course, all of our usual features.
