Our July/August issue is in the mail and should be received shortly. The feature article is on the Confederados who migrated from the South to Brazil after the end of the War. It’s a story which is not told very much. One of our S.D. Lee Institute speakers joins us with his article on a great example of a Boyle & Gamble Confederate Field Officer’s Sword. Plus all of our usual features.

January/February 2015 Issue

Our January/February 2015 issue is at the printers! We start the new year out with a bang by welcoming back Karen Stokes to our pages with excerpts from her recent book, South Carolina Civilians in Sherman’s Path. This helps to reverse the recent trend to portray Sherman as not such a bad guy by the political correct crowd. Also, Joanne Cullom Moore returns and shares her essay on The Immortal 600. No one should have low blood pressure after reading these two articles.

November/December 2014

Our November-December 2014 issue marks the end of our Sesquicentennial series. Past Commander-in-Chief Chris Sullivan shares his essay, Every Man to the Front, to close out the series. Christian Hamilton shares his senior thesis titled Lincoln’s War and Historical Revisionism: The South and Its Constitutional Authority to Secede From the Union. I think everyone will enjoy these two fine articles!
