just my 2รณ:

in 1960-1965, war was much on the publics mind. World War 2 and the Korean war were recent events. their veterans were just hitting their 40s. shucks WWI vets were only 60! The cold war was in full swing and vietnam was heating up. Civil war battlefield tactics, strategies and personalities seemed apropos.

today, war is less prevalent. social concerns prevail. the civil war now teaches more about political and social strategy, tactics and effects than military. hence the new prevalence of civil war social history...
