Dr. Chris Mackowski, professor and associate dean of undergraduate programs in the Jandoli School, has been selected by the American Battlefield Trust as a recipient of its Copie Hill Civil War Fellowship.
Mackowski will serve as a writer in residence for the Trust, America's largest battlefield preservation organization. He will be responsible for a variety of writing and media projects while also helping internal staff improve their own writing skills.
He will serve the residency concurrently with his teaching duties at St. Bonaventure.
The Copie Hill Civil War Fellowship was made possible through a gift from the HTR Foundation, founded by the late Arthur Copeland "Copie" Hill to support saving Civil War history through education and battlefield preservation.
Mackowski has authored, co-authored or edited more than 25 books related to the Civil War, and he serves as editor-in-chief of Emerging Civil War, a group of more than 30 historians dedicated to connecting the public with the story of the Civil War.
