UNC Press Journals

Named one of the Best New Magazines of 2011 by Library Journal

The Journal of the Civil War Era
Edited by Judith Giesberg
Villanova University

The Journal of the Civil War Era, published by UNC Press and the George and Ann Richards Civil War Era Center at the Pennsylvania State University, will take advantage of the flowering of research on the many issues raised by the sectional crisis, war, Reconstruction, and memory of the conflict, while bringing fresh understanding to the struggles that defined the period, and by extension, the course of American history in the nineteenth century. The Journal of the Civil War Era aims to create a space where scholars across the many subfields that animate nineteenth-century history can enter into conversation with each other.
