Washington Post Coverage

Thanks to the Washington Post for continuing its excellent coverage of the Civil War Sesquicentennial.  Here’s a link to the latest edition of the Post’s Civil War 150, which focuses on technological innovation during the conflict and the mayhem it caused.  There is also a defense of General McClellan’s conduct of the Penninsular Campaign that would have curled the hair of Editor Cleveland of the Chronicle.    The Post has also recently reviewed a new book about General Grant’s harassment of Jewish merchants, highlighting a little-known aspect of the conflict.
