- About Me
I am a PhD candidate in the history department at the University of Georgia. My dissertation, Loyalty and Locale: Secession, Civil War, and Reconstruction in East Tennessee, provides four case studies that investigate the long-lasting consequences of wartime loyalties for veterans and their families.
I am working with Dr. John Inscoe and I consider myself a social historian with a regional focus in the Appalachian South. I think value exists in studying Civil War border states and their early and lasting occupations. Loyalty manifests differently and can be informed by the community with which a soldier or supporter identifies.
I’ve helped run workshops, conferences, large talks with guest speakers, departmental functions and have a working knowledge of the logistics required to make these functions successful.
