Civil War Medicine
ECU Associate Professor of History David Long discusses Civil War Medicine during a meeting of the Laupus Health Sciences Library Medical History Interest Group. Long practiced law for twelve years, before returning to graduate school in 1987 at Florida State University. There he earned his M.A. and Ph.D. in nineteenth century American history, and almost immediately published his dissertation The Jewel of Liberty: Abraham Lincolns Re-election and the End of Slavery. The book was nominated for five of the most prestigious prizes in the field of U.S. history: the Pulitzer Prize, the Bancroft Prize, The Beveridge Award, the Parkman Award, and the Lincoln Prize. He has since published chapters in books including "I Shall Never Recall A Word" in Abraham Lincoln: Sources and Styles of Leadership and the Introduction in Abraham Lincoln: Contemporary. He has published articles or book reviews in Civil War Times Illustrated, Columbiad, Lincoln Herald, Journal of Southern History, and other journals and periodicals.
