Chris Lewis resigns from CWTI

Very sorry to see Chris Lewis resign from Civil War Times Illustrated, with the October issue representing the last touch of his hand. The recent Gallagher interview was smart stuff and a fine display of editorial judgement. He writes:
Naturally this is not an easy decision for me to make. As many of you know, I am a lifelong reader and care a great deal about this publication—which is why I cannot be a part of the “new direction” that the magazines in thisgroup are either already going in, or will be going in soon. There is no respect here anymore for history, historians or the core audience. I want to thank all of you for your support ofthe magazine over the last couple years.
Chris gave me hope for the glossies (as did Eric Wittenberg's involvement in North & South). Good luck to him - may he earn a good living in his next position and may the marketplace continue to deliver him (and us) the books an experienced reader would enjoy.
