Baltimore Riots in 1861 set the stage for Maryland’s Civil War

This week a blog series written by yours truly was published on Emerging Civil War.

The series introducing the internal conflict experienced in the state of Maryland during the American Civil War. I enjoyed the opportunity to introduce this subject and share stories of two young people who were directly affected by the struggle.

Here are all the links “Maryland, My Maryland”:

Maryland, My Maryland, Part 1 – introduces Maryland’s role as a border state during the Civil War

Maryland, My Maryland, Part 2 – follow a young Marylander who chose to fight for the Confederacy and what happened to his family as a result of his decision

Maryland, My Maryland, Part 3 – meet Miss Eupehmia Goldsborough whose charity and Southern sympathies exiled her from her home state.

Your Historian,

Miss Sarah
