Thank you, Niels, for stepping in , and Robert Harris, for your years of service and leadership to H-CivWar!
I joined H-Net around 1995 as a graduate student and would love to see a return to more robust discussions. I've moved away from college-level teaching and now teach high school AP U.S. History and American Women's History, so the Civil War and Public History discussions are still hugely relevant to me!

Hello Fellow H-CivWar-riors,
As Robert has announced, I have agreed, maybe foolishly, to help revitalize H-CivWar, but I do need everyone's help to make H-CivWar a stand out group. If you have ideas, send them along (firstname.lastname@example.org), volunteer to help with projects you think would be great additions, ec.
H-CivWar was one of the first five or six lists (as they were at the time) in the fledgling H-Net, ca. 1993. I was the founder of the list and have been the lead editor for it's entire span. That's a long time, too long, in my humble opinion. It's time for a new infusion of energy, so we have a new lead editor, Niels Eichhorn, and four new book reviewers. Together I look forward to greater energy and a return to the discussion format that has been missing for too long.
