The latest issue of the Civil War Monitor includes my “Boys at War,” a collection of stories and original wartime images of teenagers between the ages of 13-17. Though these kids were not officially counted by post-war statisticians, they marched and fought alongside their elders. Their stories are forgotten and their faces lost in time—until now.
My interview with David K. Thomson, who hosts a series of Skype interviews as part of his blog, “Behind the Lines,” on the Civil War Monitor. Description from the post:
“Our conversation with Ron Coddington, an assistant managing editor with the Chronicle of Higher Education and author of African American Faces of the Civil War: An Album, published by Johns Hopkins University Press. In this interview, Ron discusses this third installment in his Civil War photograph series, including how he was unable to uncover the powerful stories behind the images selected.”
The interview was published March 15, 2013.
