A New Civil War Journal

Yesterday, I received the first issue of The Journal of the Civil War Era, a joint venture of the University of North Carolina Press and the George and Ann Richards Civil War Era Center at The Pennsylvania State University. The first issue contains an editor’s note, three articles, a review essay, a book review section, and an article about the job market for historians specializing in the nineteenth-century. Altogether there are 140 pages of text plus several pages of advertisements in this inaugural issue. What caught my attention mostly was the inclusion of an article by LeeAnn Whites titled “Forty Shirts and a Wagonload of Wheat: Women, the Domestic Supply Line, and the Civil War on the Western Border.” Pleasant to see an article about the trans-Mississippi in the first issue!
