About Rachel Engl
Engl is a Ph.D. candidate at Lehigh University whose research explores the lived experience of men who fought in the Continental army during the Revolutionary War by uncovering the significance of personal connections they developed throughout the conflict and their ability to sustain these bonds into the years of the early republic. In reinterpreting the history of the army through the lens of emotions and relationships, her work reveals new insights about the constructs of manhood as well as the nature and legacy of the American Revolution.
Engl is a recipient of the Amanda and Greg Gregory Fellowship.
