Jonathan Lande

Please join me in congratulating Jonathan Lande, assistant professor of history, on the publication of his article “Prisoners with Undaunted Patriotism: Incarcerated Black Soldiers and Battles of Citizenship in Military Prisons during the Civil War” in the journal Civil War History 

Jonathan explores the taboo history of incarcerated Black Union soldiers. While the history of Black soldiers’ heroic contributions to the Union’s war effort has been widely documented, he turns attention to the Black soldiers who deserted the Union army and were then incarcerated. The article examines the larger narrative of Black political mobilization during the Civil War.  

Congratulations, Professor Lande!
