The Civil War: The First Year Told by Those Who Lived It … appears.

Just a note to tell you that today marks the official publication date for the Library of America’s The Civil War: The First Year Told by Those Who Lived It, which Stephen W. Sears, Aaron Sheehan-Dean, and I coedited.  Thanks to all of the people who were involved in the project.

Each of the next three volumes will be edited by one of the editors of this initial volume.  Stephen Sears will take charge of the second volume, which ends in early 1863; I will pick up from the fall of Burnside to the rise of Grant; and Aaron Sheehan-Dean will take over from there.

Enjoy.
