T. Michael Parrish
My broad areas of historical interest fall into two main categories: the American Civil War and modern American politics and foreign policy. I am especially interested in the relations between policy and action. Currently, my study centers on the impact of religious abolitionism and black military volunteerism on nineteenth century America.
