Art Bergeron

9 02 2010

A friend emailed me early this morning with the shocking news that Art Bergeron passed away yesterday, 2/8/2010.  I only met Art once, where he worked at the U. S. Army Military History Institute in Carlisle, PA, helping countelss visitors navigate the archives.  We were Facebook friends, we corresponded occasionally, and he was a good friend to Bull Runnings, always generous with his time and significant expertise.  Art earned his PhD at Louisiana State University, was a Viet Nam veteran, and authored or edited many books and articles on the Civil War, with an emphasis on Louisiana. Historians and researches have lost a good friend and resource.  Drew has posted this link to a bio of Art at the Civil War Round Table of Central Louisiana.
