Front Line" Post #3 for "The Civil War Monitor

As part of their online presence, the new magazine The Civil War Monitor has a community blog they've named "The Front Line." Terry Johnston, Editor-in-Chief of the Monitor, kindly invited me to join that community so I'll be posting there on subjects near and dear to me and (hopefully!) interesting to you!

My third "Front Line" post (here) is up on the Monitor website today:

"A Soldier's Forty Winks"

The post briefly describes the interesting research on the Civil War that can be found in modern medical and scientific journals. I highlight an article, "Sleepless Vigilance: 'Stonewall' Jackson and the Duty Hours Controversy," that appeared in the a recent issue of the American Journal of the Medical Sciences (abstract here). Find out whether the famous general got enough sleep and what impact it had on his command decisions in battle!

The Monitor's "Blog and Social Media Editor," Laura June Davis, is doing an amazing job at keeping the site updated and dynamic...You will want to visit the Monitor website (here) every day as there is always new content!

You can also keep up with them on Facebook (here) or Twitter (here).


You can see my other "Front Line" blog posts for the Monitor here:

#1 - "Coal for the Furances is as Important as Gunpowder for the Guns" (here)
#2 - "A Regiment of Inventors" (here)
