An Environmental History of the Civil War

This chapter discusses the rationale and blueprint for the book, explaining how the authors combine the methodologies of environmental and military history to tell a more holistic story of the Civil War. It begins with an analysis of Burnside’s Mud March in January 1863, and uses that campaign to demonstrate how to merge these two disciplines into a deeper analysis of the war. The authors demonstrate how examining the war as an ecological event allows for a more complete and comprehensive understanding of the conflict.

Keywords:   Burnside, Mud March, environment, war, ecology
