HIST 2600: Popular Mobilization in the American Civil War: Welcome

One of the most hotly debated academic issues of the Civil War remains the motivation of common soldiers to fight in what still remains America’s costliest conflict.

Civil War in the News

Alonzo Cushing died at Gettysburg in 1863.  In 2010 he was awarded the medal of Honor.  The U.S. Congressional Serial Set contains numerous petitions from family of the Civil War dead, like this one from Alonso's mother.
