Dr. Chris Mackowski, professor of journalism and mass communication, has co-authored an article that appears in the latest edition of Civil War Times magazine.
“Another Butchery: The Third and Final Union Attack on Spotsylvania’s ‘Bloody Angle’” examines the May 18 assault during the 1864 battle of Spotsylvania Court House. The assault is overshadowed by two earlier attacks — May 10 and May 12 — yet its scope and size made it one of the largest attacks of the campaign up to that point.
Mackowski collaborated on the article with frequent co-author Kristopher D. White. Both have served as historians for the National Park Service at Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park.
With nearly 50,000 subscribers, Civil War Times is the largest and oldest magazine devoted to the American Civil War.
