I am currently in various stages of work on two book projects:
- The Last Ditch: Black Confederates in Southern History and Southern Memory , will be a monograph about the Confederacy’s last ditch attempt to arm its slaves, the fierce debates it engendered with the Confederacy, and its legacy in Southern society.
- The Rise of the American Military Profession , is a book in early development that I have been thinking about for some time. It will describe the rise of professional military to a position of dominance in matters of national security, from a nadir at the passage of the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, which symbolically punished the professionals for their role in Reconstruction, to the end of the victorious campaigns of World War I in 1919, which confirmed the professonals’ primacy in wartime and set the stage for even greater roles in the twentieth century.
