A Few More Thoughts on Civil Discourse
As you may have seen, Kevin Levin has responded to my previous post and I thank him for taking the time to clarify a few things. He and I are certainly on the same page when it comes to
keeping the discussion all “about the history.” I was further relieved ...

Civil Discourse: A Memory?
In our increasingly polarized society there seems to have
been a shift from a “live and let live” mentality to a vigorous prosecution of
“thought crime” – no longer can we agree to disagree, but anyone who strays
from what is considered the cultural mainstr...

Introduction
I am the Historic Site Manager for Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park and Ben Lomond Historic Site in Prince William County. I received my M.A. in Military History from Norwich University in 2009 and have worked for such sites as Arlington House: The Robert E. Lee Memorial, Richmond National Battlefield Park, and Germanna Community College. My first book, The Battle of New Market Heights: Freedom Will Be Theirs by the Sword, was nominated in the nonfiction category for the 15th annual Library of Virginia Literary Awards. The Journal of Southern History claims that "this slim volume offers considerable insight regarding the black military experience.” My  second book, The Battle of First Deep Bottom was released in September of 2014 . I also write about different aspects of history on my blogs Freedom by the Sword: A Historian’s Journey through the American Civil War Era and Over There: Blogging The AEF & World War I.
