Journals

The University of North Carolina Press offers two journals featuring Civil War content.

The Journal of the Civil War Era showcases emerging 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.

Southern Cultures explores the history, politics, folklore, literature, art, and social structures of the South, including the role the Civil War has played and continues to play in popular memory and culture. The Library of Congress has selected the Civil War portion of Southern Cultures.org for inclusion in the historic collection of Internet materials related to the American Civil War Sesquicentennial.
