About Me

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Dale Center for the Study of War & Society at the University of Southern Mississippi (Hattiesburg). My dissertation research analyzes the intersection of race, gender, and place in western Union Civil War commemorations. Examining how Union veterans and their families commemorated the war in the trans-Mississippi West, I argue western Unionists constructed a western-centric narrative of the Civil War to bolster their vision of western expansion and the colonization of indigenous Americans.
