Current Projects

  • My dissertation research centers around a group of brothers who served as federal soldiers during the American Civil War. I investigate the role of nineteenth-century societal expectations and norms, conceptions of manhood and masculinity more broadly, and how these themes affected the brothers’ service to the Federal Army throughout the course of the war and their position as veterans afterward.
