Research Interests

My dissertation, “Reconstructed Rebels: The Ex-Confederate Allies of Congressional Reconstruction,” examines former Confederates who joined the Republican Party. My research interests include 19th and 20th century U.S. history and the long history of American empire, nation-building, political institutions, and citizenship.
