Allen Horn on the NEHA Spring 2021 conference

On Saturday April 10th, I presented my paper “Little Sorrel, Living Relic of the Lost Cause,” at the Spring 2021 New England Historical Association conference, hosted virtually by Emmanuel College. My presentation covered the life and legacy of Little Sorrel, the favorite warhorse of rebel commander Stonewall Jackson, who miraculously survived the war, went on tour across the South, and was heavily memorialized after his death.


I took an active role in organizing the panel. I applied alongside Dr. Charlotte Carrington-Farmer, who presented on mule exports from New England to the Caribbean in the Eighteenth Century, and Dr. Jane Flynn, who discussed the famous World War I British cavalry horse Songster and his legacy. Dr. Nisha Rayaroth joined our panel later on and delivered an excellent presentation on Indian circus elephants.


I had an excellent time at the conference and was honored to present alongside such excellent panelists.
