Over the course of Black History Month 2012, we’ve posted SCL Picks and new titles on a variety of topics: literature, fine arts, religion, gender, film studies, love, and even the first published novel by an African American woman. As February comes to a close, we thought we would round things out with four recent titles in the area of military history.
- Men of Color to Arms! Black Soldiers, Indian Wars, and the Quest for Equality. Elizabeth Leonard. 2010
- An African American History of the Civil War in Hampton Roads. Cassandra L. Newby-Alexander. 2010
- Brothers to the Buffalo Soldiers: Perspectives on the African American militia and volunteers, 1865-1917. Bruce A. Glasrud, editor. 2011
- Border war: fighting over slavery before the Civil War. Stanley Harrold. 2010.
As always, we also encourage you to make use of the Stone Center Library’s Guide to the Web, which includes a section of online resources covering African American military history. Plus, did you know the itself Guide is searchable? In addition to perusing the Guide by topic, the “Search the Guide” bar allows for keyword searching to pull sites listed in the guide from across sections. For example, searching for “Tuskegee” yields this list of websites contained within the Guide: http://bit.ly/wnbZGo. Happy searching!
