CSPAN posted this video this evening, the first of what I believe will be a series filmed at this summer’s superb Civil War Institute conference at Gettysburg College.
It features scholar Harold Holzer, who will speak at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg on Sept. 21 in a free, statewide forum about the Civil War emancipation. Holzer was the kickoff speaker at the multi-day conference.
In the video, Holzer explains how the tone of images of Generals Lee and McClellan changed over the course of the war and beyond, as dictated by each general’s successes and failures on and off the battlefield, CSPAN says.
