Westword‘s Patricia Calhoun has been documenting the ongoing memory fights that still surround the Sand Creek massacre in Colorado. Here’s a recent piece she did on the healing run. And here’s a gallery of images from the last day of this year’s run. I’m especially taken with the various pictures of Denver’s Riverside Cemetery, one of my favorite urban landscapes, and the shots of historical markers. I’m nothing if not predictable.
Chapter Six examines emancipation and the Richmond bread rights.
Chapter Eleven digs into the trenches on the road to Richmond.
Chapter Twelve captures the horror of Andersonville.
Chapter Fourteen explores a series of episodes from Reconstruction.
Since a few people have asked, we’re about a month out from finishing Battle Lines. The pages I’m linking below haven’t been colored and mostly haven’t been shaded either, but they’ll give you some idea of what the book will look like.
Chapter One focuses on the fall of Ft. Sumter.
Chapter Two is a montage of episodes on the road to the war.
Chapter Four explores the fate of a contraband slave.
Chapter Five looks at medical practices and the Battle of Antietam.
I’ll try to get some more of these up in the next few days.
