Saw your post about Twelve Years a Slave.
I think you’d be interested in my research on Northup.
If you e-mail me, I can tell you about a connection between Northup
and the 54th Mass.
Hi, any chance you could tell me how I might access video of Sarver’s interview on the Dick Cavett show? (or maybe find the transcript for it?). Am writing a research paper and it might be relevant. thanks
My husband and I are writing a book about 19th century artist James Hope. We are interested in the image “After the Battle” on this website, a print reproduction from his painting. Is this in the public domain, and may we use it? Thank you.
Thank you for the message. The image is from 1889 and so is in the public domain. You are free to use the image I posted on this site. However, you may need a higher resolution scan. In that case, you might want to contact the UALR Center for Arkansas History and Culture in Little Rock, where I used to work. They have a copy of the image in the Heiskell Photograph Collection. Here’s a link to the collection. The image number is 839. http://arstudies.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/compoundobject/collection/findingaids/id/4332/show/4331/rec/2
Dear Dr. Woodward,
My name is J.R. Hardman, and I am working on a documentary about women in Civil War reenacting who portray soldiers and the historical women who served in the Civil War that inspire their impressions and continued research on the subject of female soldiers.
I recently listened to an episode of the Amerikan Rambler podcast in which you interviewed William C. “Jack” Davis about his book Inventing Loreta Velasquez. I found the discussion on your podcast extremely interesting, especially the parts where you and Professor Davis discussed the motivations behind his book.
I would greatly like to interview Professor Davis for my documentary regarding his research and the reception of that research from the community of female soldier interpreters and historians on women soldiers.
Would you be able to help me get in contact with him?
In addition, I was hoping we might be able to use some audio excerpts from your interview in our project.
I would love to talk to you more about it if you have 15-20 minutes to speak with me over the phone. Please let me know.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing back from you.
Thank you for contacting me. I forwarded your message to Jack Davis. You are welcome to use audio clips from the podcast, provided you provide a credit line at the end. Let me know if I can be of any further help. Good luck with your documentary!
