World of Antebellum America: A Daily Life Encyclopedia

I have had a great response to the calls for this encyclopedia to be published by ABC-Clio. Yet I am still looking for authors for a few entries. Please let me know if you interested in writing anyone of these entries. This is an exciting project, which will be turned over to the publisher next summer.

Please contact me, Dr. Alexandra Kindell, at I look forward to hearing from you.
