FOR
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10 TO HEAR
ANOTHER LEGENDARY CIVIL WAR HISTORIAN…
WILLIAM C. “JACK” DAVIS!
What a way to start the year!  First…we hosted Ed Bearss.  Now…in October, at the “623rd Meeting” of The Civil War Round Table of New York, we are going to hear from a prolific Pulitzer-Prize Nominated writer, an award-winning Emmy Nominated author, a famed Lincoln-Prize Finalist historian, and an unrivaled speaker.  They just happen to be one and the same person!
 William C. “Jack” Davis is a native of Independence, Missouri.  He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Sonoma State University in Northern California.  He spent 20 years in editorial management in the magazine and book publishing industry.
In 1990, Jack left that line of work and spent the next decade working as a writer and consultant both here and abroad.  If you can believe it, Jack is the author or editor of more than fifty books in the fields of the Civil War and Southern history, as well as numerous documentary screenplays.
He was the on-camera senior consultant for 52 episodes of the History Channel series “Civil War Journal” which I have to tell you got me into trouble many, many times.  Unfortunately for my “then” employer, they liked to televise the show in the mornings here in New York, and I was always late to work…thanks to Jack!
But the Civil War Journal was not the only production Jack worked on.  Other productions included Commercial and Public Television, as well as the BBC, where he acted as historical consultant for several television and film productions, including “The Blue and the Gray,” “George Washington,” and “The Perfect Tribute.” 
From 2000 to 2013 he was Professor of History and Director of Programs of the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Jack is a three-time winner of the Jefferson Davis Award given for book-length works in Confederate History, our own Fletcher Pratt Award in 1977 (only 41 short years ago) and our Barondess Lincoln Prize in 2000.
