Hello world!

Welcome to The Late Unpleasantness, a genteel but dated euphemism for the American Civil War.  A century and a half after the event, the war remains relevent and at times controversial.  Surprisingly, there are various aspects of the war which are still little known and many controversies that remain as unresolved as they were immediately after the war.

Lincoln’s Inauguration

In the following posts I shall attempt to explore lesser known aspects of the war, as well as the more famous events which we think we know all about–yet around which controversey still swirls.

So, sit back, pour a fresh cup of Java and buckle your seats. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.


About Christopher Coleman

I am an author, lecturer, and sometime instructor. My interests span a variety of subjects, including Southern tales of the supernatural, American history and folklore, military history in general, as well as archaeology, anthropology, plus various and sundry things that go bump in the night. I currently have six books in print: Strange Tales of the Dark and Bloody Ground, Ghosts and Haunts of the Civil War, Dixie Spirits, Ghosts and Haunts of Tennessee and The Paranormal Presidency of Abraham Lincoln, a factual history of some more esoteric--and hitherto overlooked--aspects the sixteenth President. My book is Ambrose Bierce and the Period of Honorable Strife, published in hardcover by the University of Tennessee Press and chronicling the wartime experiences of young Ambrose Bierce, noted American author. Bierce has been called many things by many people, but idealist, hero and patriot are terms that should be added to the list after reading this book. I am currently at work on several projects, some dealing with the American experience but also several fiction and non-fiction works looking into the Age of Arthur.
