Gettysburg College has long been known as a center of Civil War scholarship, and not just because of the faculty who teach there. The college’s Civil War Institute sponsors an annual summer seminar, and undergraduates can come to Gettysburg to be a part of the Gettysburg Semester. Now the college has gone a step further in promotion undergraduate research in the field of Civil War studies. The first issue of The Gettysburg College Journal of Civil War Studies has just appeared: you can download it here.
I confess to being particularly interested in this inaugural issue because of the lead article, “The Visual Documentation of Antietam,” by Kristilyn Baldwin. That’s because Ms. Baldwin happens to be my student, and this article was one product of her work under my supervision. Congratulations to her!
