The Civil War was the most destructive conflict in American history, but it was also one of our most defining moments as a people and as a nation.

This Week in the Civil War - #TY1

This is John Huddleston. The writer, creator of This Week in the Civil War. Since March of 2011, its been my distinct pleasure to write vignettes on the American Civil War for Texas Public Radio. During that time, I’ve been blessed to work with professionals both at Schreiner University and at 
Texas Public Radio. I want especially to thank Dr. Timothy Summerlin, the President of Schreiner University, Dr. Charlie McCormick, Schreiner’s Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dr. William Woods, Dean of the School of Liberal Arts at Schreiner for their continuing support of me and my efforts in writing This Week in the Civil War. I thank many of my history students at Schreiner University for authoring vignettes and especially my very capable colleague and specialist in European History, Dr, Jeremy Roethler for assisting me during the first year in writing a series of vignettes. A heartfelt thanks goes out to all these good folks.
