Topic:  “Battle of the Bloody Angle.”

For twenty-two straight hours, in torrential downpours, up to their knees in mud and blood, Federals and ConfederatesLayout 1 slugged it out in the most intense sustained hand-to-hand combat of the war. A panopoly of horror, one soldier called it. A Saturnalia of blood. Hell’s Half-Acre. The slaughter pen of Spotsylvania. Most remember it simply as the Bloody Angle.

Chris Mackowski, Ph.D., is the editor-in-chief of Emerging Civil War and managing editor of the Emerging Civil War Series. He is a professor of journalism and mass communication at St. Bonaventure University in Allegany, NY, and historian-in-residence at Stevenson Ridge, a historic property on the Spotsylvania battlefield in central Virginia. He has also worked as a historian for the National Park Service at Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park, where he gives tours at four major Civil War battlefields (Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness, and downloadSpotsylvania), as well as at the building where Stonewall Jackson died. Chris serves on the national advisory board for the Civil War Chaplains Museum in Lynchburg, Virginia.
