4 Periodical Indexes
Alan C. AimoneContinued and growing interest in the Civil War has led the American civilian press to give extensive coverage to various aspects of the conflict. America's long-running military periodical Army and Navy Journal, currently named Armed Forces Journal International, has also dealt with the war. Other magazines came into being as outlets for the reminiscences of veterans, and interest did not flag after the veterans were gone. The Journal of Southern History began publication in the 1930s, and a renewed interest in Lincoln studies during those years gave birth to the Lincoln Herald. Civil War History began publication in 1955 and was followed by a series of popular magazines with Civil War themes. Many periodical reference indexes assist the researcher in locating articles from all of these magazines and more, plus specific articles identified as of lasting value in subject bibliographies.
