An Environmental History of the Civil War
In An Environmental History of the Civil War, professors Judkin Browning and Timothy Silver recognize that the Civil War was not just a military conflict but also a moment of profound transformation in Americans’ relationship to the natural world. They combine military and environmental history to forge a comprehensive new narrative of the war’s significance and impact while showing how the war influenced the future of weather forecasting, veterinary medicine, the birth of the conservation movement, and the establishment of the first national parks. A book signing follows the program.
