I am seeking a third panelst for a panel proposal to the Filson Institute's conference on Hard War in the Civil War this coming October. Currently, we have two papers and a chair set for the panel. I am waiting to hear about a commenter. One paper examines the Union blockade as a part of hard war policy and my paper compares John Pope's civil-military policies in Virginia in 1862 to his military-Indian policies while head of the Department of the Northwest. Any paper that examines hard war broadly is welcome. If anyone is interested please send me a copy of your cv and a short description of your paper topic at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1. Thank you all for your consideration.
