Hello H-CivWar readers,
today we want to offer you a little teaser for our next video interview series with Kevin Waite, which will start next week. In this teaser, we chat about the Civil War West scholarship and its importance.
Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Kevin Waite via Zoom. We talked about his new book West of Slavery: The Southern Dream of a Transcontinental Empire, published by the University of North Carolina Press.
Kevin Waite is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and an assistant professor of history at Durham University. His writings have also appeared in the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, the Journal of the Civil War Era, and California History.
