"Inexcusable by Us as Soldiers: Wartime Dissent and the 1863 Keokuk Soldier Mob"
Lund examines an anti-press mob carried out by Civil War soldiers recovering at the Union hospital in Keokuk in 1863. Through his study, Lund argues that the Keokuk incident not only sheds light on why Union soldiers engaged in widespread violence against the press, but also why they got away with it.
"In Memoriam: Tom Morain (1947-2020), Ambassador for Iowa History"
"To Rattle Dry Bones"
Thomas J. Morain
Morain offers reflections on the importance of history and specifically the importance of local and state history. By thinking about historical artifacts, historical processes, and historical places, he emphasizes the critical role that the study and understanding of history plays in articulating the meanings and relationships that bind the present and future to the past.
