'Crisis of Faith' earns Emmy® Award recognition...

Nashville Public Television recently shared the wonderful news that its Tennessee Civil War 150 documentary series earned two Midsouth Regional Emmy® Awards for 'Crisis of Faith' and 'No Going Back: Women and the War.'

My wife, Traci Nichols-Belt, was among several scholars interviewed for the documentary, 'Crisis of Faith,' so we're especially honored to have had a small part in this outstanding achievement.

We would like to extend a special congratulations to Justin Harvey, who interviewed Traci for the documentary, and who asked some especially insightful questions during the interview. The conversation was engaging, and we think the final product certainly deserved this well-earned recognition. Well done!
