As mentioned earlier, I attended the the Naval History & Heritage Command’s Civil War at Sea Symposium on Saturday. I’ve posted a short review of the event on the Civil War Navy Sesquicentennial site for those who are interested.
On the whole enlightening and entertaining, despite running long. I gained quite a number of new insights onto the naval aspects of the war. Fellow blogger Matthew Eng offered his thoughts on Civil War memory as applied to the naval aspects of the war. Interesting and perhaps the groundwork for future posts on the subject.
