About the Author
Mark A. Snell retired from the United States Army in 1993. Among his wide variety of assignments during more than twenty years of service, he taught American history from 1987-1990 in the Department of History at the U.S. Military Academy. Snell is the founding director of the George Tyler Moore Center for the Study of the Civil War at Shepherd University and was professor of history at Shepherd University for twenty years until his second retirement in 2013. In 2008, he was the Senior Visiting Lecturer of War Studies at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in the United Kingdom. Snell is the author or editor of numerous books and essays on the Civil War and American military history, including Unknown Soldiers: The American Expeditionary Forces in Memory and Remembrance (The Kent State University Press, 2008) and a book forthcoming from the Kent State University Press about Gettysburg during the First World War and the two Army camps whose soldiers lived and trained on the old battlefield. In 2009, West Virginia governor Joe Manchin presented Snell with the Honorary West Virginian award, the highest accolade that can be bestowed on a nonresident of the state.
