Publication: The Journal of Burma Studies

I can finally announce that The Journal of Burma Studies will publish my article entitled, “The Other Bayonet: A New Source to Frame the Second Anglo-Burmese War” in their June issue (Vol 21, no. 1).

I carefully compared Elam Luddington’s Mormon missionary journal entries about Burma against all the effected primary sources of that time period and discovered something quite revealing. Luddington wrote and saw things in Burma that no one else recorded or that has reached the historical record.

These revelations, in some cases, alter what we know about the Second Anglo-Burmese War and confirm what some have believed was true but did not have a primary source to confirm that belief.
