Civil War Book Discussion: Crossroads of Freedom and America’s War Anthology Part IV
In the fourth segment of the discussion series, opposing views are offered on the study of Antietam. Neither the Union nor the Confederacy could claim a glorious victory, but Civil War historians James McPherson and Gary Gallagher argue sides on a victory. McPherson sides for a Union victory while Gallagher argues on behalf of the strength of the Confederate Army. Drew Gilpin Faust’s excerpt shifts our focus from the the course of battle and politics, to the suffering of families and communities and asks that we broaden our vision of what took place.
Admission is free. For more details, please call 301-934-7606 or visit email@example.com.
