Becca Capobianco is currently pursuing her doctorate in 19th-century U.S. history at William and Mary. She received her master's degree in American and public history from Villanova University. While at Villanova she participated in the Memorable Days Project, transcribing, annotating, and digitizing the diary of Emilie Davis, an African American woman living in Philadelphia during the Civil War.

Becca previously worked as an educational consultant and seasonal park ranger with the National Park Service, and she has worked as an adjunct professor of history at Germanna Community College. Her interests include 19th century reform movements, memory and commemoration, and the ways the Civil War defined and continues to define national identity in the United States.
