Carl Guarneri, Ph.D.

Guarneri focuses on nineteenth and twentieth-century U.S. history and his research interest examines three primary areas: global and comparative approaches to American history, utopian societies and the Civil War.

Guarneri is also currently working on a book on Charles Dana, who was a former journalist, government official and somewhat of a PR representative for Union General Ulysses S. Grant, who, because of rumors of alcoholism, was the object of much concern to the War Department of President Abraham Lincoln.
