Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the Society of Civil War Historians.
Since we can’t be together at the conference, we’re bringing our book exhibit to you.
From virtually anywhere, you can browse our list of new and recent titles, chat with our editor Mark Simpson-Vos, learn about our new books in our Civil War America Series, and more.
Check out these cool book trailers for some recent titles:

And check out The Journal of the Civil War Era, too. We’re also happy to announce the new editors of the Journal, Greg Downs and Kate Masur.
Follow the links at the left for information on submitting a book proposal, ordering desk or examination copies (even free digital exam copies), classroom permissions, disability resources, and more. We’ve even created a handy FAQ document, with answers to the most-asked questions we get at exhibit booths.
Click on any book below to learn more. And, using our View Inside feature, you can leaf through the pages for a preview of each new book, just as if you were standing at our booth. Check it out on each book page.
