Summer 2015 in the Civil War Monitor

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on June 14, 2015

The new issue of the Civil War Monitor is now online, and will be appearing in mailboxes and on newsstands shortly. In this issue:

Angels of War. Like the men they saw off to the front, women too felt the pull of patriotism at the outbreak of the Civil War. For many wives, daughters, and sisters—northern and southern, young and old—the most useful way to support country and cause was to volunteer as a nurse.

Closing Act. In the last months of the Civil War, Texas and the Trans-Mississippi of the Confederacy struggled to hang on. By Andrew W. Hall

Death and Life on Belle Isle. An idyllic setting on the James River—where modern Richmonders bike, swim, run, and relax—belies a dark Civil War history. By John M. Coski
