Recent Journal Articles of Interest

The “press of business” has kept me from my blog, but hopefully I’m back now to a regular posting schedule.

Last week, I received the latest issue of my favorite scholarly journal: The Journal of Southern History. If you’re not familiar with it, JSH is the scholarly publication of the Southern Historical Association. The May issue contains “Southern History in Periodicals, 2010: A Selected Bibliography.” Since I am a geeky history professor I enjoy reading through the list of articles and while perusing I noticed several items that relate to the trans-Mississippi. For those who might be interested the articles are:
