The Bookshelf

New Review Editor for The Civil War Monitor!

Posted 12/9/2013 Reviewed By Matthew C. Hulbert

For the last two years, it has been my genuine privilege to partner with many of the Civil War era's brightest scholars and most distinguished presses to provide reviews of the latest books, films, and music. To everyone who has contributed to The Bookshelf since we began operations in September 2011, you have my sincerest thanks and gratitude.

With my tenure nearing its end, I am very pleased to introduce Brian Matthew Jordan as the incoming book review editor of The Civil War Monitor effective January 15, 2014.

Brian is a veteran of both Gettysburg College (B.A.) and Yale University (Ph.D.) and has contributed numerous publications to the field of Civil War history, including Unholy Sabbath: The Battle of South Mountain in History and Memory, September 14, 1862 in 2012. I have every confidence that Brian's tenure as book review editor will be highly successful and hope that our readers and contributors will grant him the same outstanding levels of support and loyalty.

Please begin shipping review titles to Brian effective immediately. He can be contacted at for further details. All other media-related requests/inquiries should be sent to Brian beginning January 15, 2014, as should general questions concerning content hosted on The Bookshelf.


If you are interested in contributing a review to The Civil War Monitor, please contact Brian at and enclose an up-to-date CV. (Note: If you have already accepted a review due after January 15, 2014, please send the finished review to Brian at the email address listed above.)


All the best,
