The Civil War Connections Blog

Intern Intro

Hello, loyal blog readers!  My name is Mitch Davis and I am a senior history major at Christopher Newport University. I am a new intern at The Mariners’ Museum and will be contributing to the blog.  Here is a little bit about me: I enjoy hiking, kayaking, canoeing, playing basketball, reading, and listening to music.  After I graduate I hope to get a job in the public history realm, such as working for the National Park Service or a non-profit organization.  As far as my role for this blog I will try to bring in the lighter side of the Civil War and connect aspects of the war to things most people would not expect to be connected to the war.

Check back on Monday for the new blog feature Music Mondays!
