Hagestown Community College professor honored as Civil War historian

July 01, 2011

Hagerstown Community College professor Thomas Clemens recently received two awards for his work as a Civil War historian.

In April, Clemens received the Hagerstown Civil War Round Table's Henry Kyd Douglas Award, which is presented to individuals who have advanced the study of the Civil War through preservation, publication and education. Clemens was chosen because of his work as a historian, re-enactor and licensed tour guide at Antietam Battlefield.

Clemens received his second award in June when he was recognized as a 2010 Army Historical Foundation Distinguished Writing Award recipient for his work on "The Maryland Campaign of September 1862, Volume I: South Mountain," the first part of a two-volume historical, annotated manuscript that details the Maryland Campaign.

Clemens has been teaching at HCC since 1978.
