January/February 2015 Issue

Our January/February 2015 issue is at the printers! We start the new year out with a bang by welcoming back Karen Stokes to our pages with excerpts from her recent book, South Carolina Civilians in Sherman’s Path. This helps to reverse the recent trend to portray Sherman as not such a bad guy by the political correct crowd. Also, Joanne Cullom Moore returns and shares her essay on The Immortal 600. No one should have low blood pressure after reading these two articles.

November/December 2014

Our November-December 2014 issue marks the end of our Sesquicentennial series. Past Commander-in-Chief Chris Sullivan shares his essay, Every Man to the Front, to close out the series. Christian Hamilton shares his senior thesis titled Lincoln’s War and Historical Revisionism: The South and Its Constitutional Authority to Secede From the Union. I think everyone will enjoy these two fine articles!
