If you’d like to chat even more about the Civil War, there’s a live discussion today at 1 p.m., where I’ll be taking questions along with Garry Adelman, the director of the Civil War Trust and a noted Civil War author, and Civil War cartographer Gene Thorp.

Fritz Hahn has covered bars, drinks and nightlife for the Washington Post Weekend Section since 2003, but he also writes about everything from Civil War battlefields to sailing classes. You can find him on Twitter and Instagram.
