Early April 2019 · Newsletter- ish
Yes, we don’t typically send out our Emerging Civil War newsletter until the last week of each month, but we have a bunch of tidbits we wanted to pass along, so we thought we'd send a quick supplemental email so we could share a couple things.
ECW All Stars!

First of all, we wanted to say “Thank you” to our newsletter subscribers. Last week, Constant Contact—the company that distributes our newsletter—named us a “Constant Contact All Star” for 2018. That means we’re among the top ten percent of their most effective newsletters. The thanks for that goes to YOU for opening and reading our newsletters. We’re so pleased for the chance to stay in touch with you, and we’re glad you feel the same way!
Emerging Civil War Tournament of Books
Second, we’ve been running an Emerging Civil War Tournament of Books on ECW's Facebook page. We coincidentally had 32 books, so that made for a nice convenient bracket. We’re down to the Elite Eight, starting today, but it’s not too late to join in on the fun. You can see the full rules here, including details about discounts our publisher, Savas Beatie, is offering for books that advance into the deeper rounds.

Here’s a look at the full bracket so far (you can click on it for an enlarged view):
The ECW Bookshelf

Third, this week brought a double dose of good fortune to the Emerging Civil War bookshelf: Attack at Daylight and Whip Them: The Battle of Shiloh by Greg Mertz--just in time for the battle's anniversary--and The Most Desperate Acts of Gallantry: George Custer in the Civil War, the first solo book by ECW's Daniel T. Davis. Both shipped from the printer last week, hot off the press! They'll be available in bookstores soon, but you can order them now at savasbeatie.com. We'll have more on each book in our regular newsletter later this month.
The Civil War Roundtable Congress

Finally, the Civil War Roundtable Congress just announced details for its 2019 meeting. This is a great opportunity for roundtables to network, learn best practices, share success stories, and learn from each other. The Congress’s motto is “Improvement through education and networking.” ECW's Chris Mackowski, Kristen Pawlak, and Kevin Pawlak are all involved.

This year’s event will be held September 20-22, 2019, at the Missouri Civil War Museum at the historic Jefferson Barracks in St. Louis. You can find details here.
We hope your April has gotten off to a great start
—and that’s no foolin’!
