The 2011 Missouri Literary Festival is proud to announce that Civil War historian William C. Davis has joined the Festival lineup.

A native of Independence, MO, with more than 50 books to his credit as either author or editor, Davis is a widely consulted expert on Civil War and southern history. His books “Battle of Bull Run” and “Breckinridge: Statesman, Soldier, Symbol” were nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.

Davis served as on-camera senior consultant on the series “Civil War Journal” for A&E Network and The History Channel, and was historical consultant on television and film productions including “The Blue and the Gray,” “George Washington” and “The Perfect Tribute.”

The only three-time winner of the Jefferson Davis Award, honoring book-length works on Confederate history, Davis is a professor of history at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and director of programs at the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies.
