Dr. Glatthaar

In this lecture, based on his new book General Lee’s Army, Dr. Glatthaar used the story of Robert E. Lee’s army as a powerful lens for viewing the entire Civil War, from the early springtime of southern hopes to final crushing defeat, from the homefront to the heart of the most famous battles of the war.

Dr. Glatthaar has taught history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. (Introduction by Charles F. Bryan, Jr.)
