pratt street riots

DR. ANNE RUBIN, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF HISTORY

On April 19, 1861, Baltimore was the site of the Civil War’s pratt Street Riots. Here, Anne Rubin tells the story of the riots and the first casualties of the war.

Anne Rubin, associate professor of history, is the author of A Shattered Nation: The Rise and Fall of the Confederacy, 1861-1868, and, with Edward Ayers, the CD-ROM The Valley of the Shadow: Two Communities in The American Civil War Part I: The Eve of War, which won, among others, the E-Lincoln prize. She has authored articles and chapters in numerous Civil War books, magazines, and encyclopedias.

Rubin is now developing Sherman’s March and America, an interactive project that tells the story of the march through maps, photos, videos and voices, and writing a related book called Through the Heart of Dixie: Sherman’s March and America, which will be published by UNC Press.
