Differing Perspectives on the Civil War

Thursday, March 6, 2008Differing Perspectives on the U.S. Civil War

There's something about the Civil War that captures the American imagination. The battle of brother against brother lends itself to dramatization, and it's been the subject of countless films and books - more than a few of which are the product of historian and author James McPherson. His scholarship has focused on not only the historical context and repercussions of the Civil War, but the personal lives and motivations of the soldiers who fought. Tune in this Wednesday when McPherson joins us to explore the Civil War from differing perspectives - and call us to add your own.Listen to the Show:Segment ASegment BSegment CRelated Links:
