Society of Civil War Historians (SCWH) to meet, June 14-16, 2012


Society of Civil War Historians

Biennial Meeting

The Society of Civil War Historians will host their third biennial academic conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Kentucky, on June 14 through 16, 2012. The goal of the conference is to promote the integration of social, military, political, and other forms of history on the Civil War era among historians, graduate students, and professionals who interpret history in museums, national parks, archives, and other public facilities.

In just a few days, I’ll be attending the SCWH Convention, where I’ll chair and comment on the panel entitled “Noted Guerrillas, Fanatical Jayhawkers, and the Borders of War: Memory and Origins of Guerrilla War History.” This panel features the following works of original research by several rising young scholars:

Matthew C. Hulbert, University of Georgia, Writing Missouri’s Irregular History: How to Remember “This Damnable Guerrilla Warfare”

Bonnie Laughlin-Schultz, Appalachian State University, “He Depended on Me to Watch”: Annie Brown, Housekeeper and “Outlaw Girl”

Joseph M. Beilein, Jr., University of Missouri, Columbia, “Nothing but Truth is History”: William E. Connelley. William H. Gregg, and Pillaging of Guerrilla History

Brian D. McKnight of the University of Virginia’s College at Wise, and author of Confederate Outlaw: Champ Ferguson and the Civil War in Appalachia, will also comment.

  1. I find all of your writings so interesting. My great great great Grandfather’s brother was Newt Knight. I just ordered the book by Ethel Knight. I love history. Enjoying reading your posts.


  2. Thank you for writing, Barbara! The Free State of Jones is a fascinating story, and even more so when your own family was involved!
