Civil War History and Historians during Covid-19

Niels Eichhorn's picture

Hello H-CivWar readers,

these past few weeks have been trying for all of us. Many of us have struggled with moving classes online, had conferences canceled, and have faced the general uncertainty of the new Covid-19 environment. In our time of social distancing, many historians have done some exceptional work, for example, hosting Zoom talks, meetings, and interviews:

- Ranger Chris Barr has done a series of interview for the Reconstruction Era National Historical Park

- The Tattooed Historian (aka John Heckman) has conducted a large number of live stream video interviews on Facebook

- The American Battlefield Trust has hosted a number of Zoom conversations titled "Zoom Goes the History"

- The History Summit gave authors an opportunity to introduce their new books

We have created a page here on H-CivWar where we would like to compile these efforts:

Stay Safe and Healthy!
