Today’s guest post is by Billy Coleman, a postdoctoral fellow in the history department at the University of British Columbia. His article, “Confederate Music and the Politics of Treason and Disloyalty in the American Civil War,” appears in the February 2020 issue of the Journal.
November is a big month for new work in southern history, with the annual meeting of the Southern Historical Association (#2019SHA), which took place in Louisville, and the publication of the final issue of Volume 85 of the Journal of Southern History. The November 2019 issue has been mailed to SHA members and is available digitally through our partnership with Project MUSE.
As always, those attending the upcoming meeting of the Southern Historical Association in Louisville can look forward to a lively and engaging program. It’s fair to say, however, that they are unlikely to witness anything quite so momentous as what transpired exactly seventy years ago, when the SHA convened in Williamsburg, VA.
