The events that occurred at our nation’s Capitol on January 6, 2021 are not only shocking in today’s world, but also generated comparisons to previous episodes from history.

As images, video clips, and news reports filled social media feeds, they invited comparisons to previous historical events and inquiries about connections to the past. Many of these questions were related to the Civil War era.

ACWM has compiled a list of resources that speak to many of these questions, and help provide historical context to these events. Many are new pieces written by Civil War historians, sharing the connections that they see in current events and conversations as they unfold.
