Robert Hunt, author of "The Good Men Who Won the War: Army of the Cumberland Veterans and Emancipation Memory."
Gerry's Monologue - "This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...
"...Civil War regimental histories, largely written by and for veterans, were once prized as primary sources for the events they described. Since the late 20th Century, however, a generation of memory studies has taught historians not to rely on such works, uncritically, as evidence for what took place during the war. Professor Robert Hunt has turned the tables by writing a book based almost entirely on regimental histories, using them to show not just what happened during the war, but as evidence for the meaning of the war; as perceived by those who fought in the Unions Army of the Cumberland. Join us today, for an interview with the author of "The Good Men Who Won the War: Army of the Cumberland Veterans and Emancipation Memory," he is Robert Hunt and he will be with us on Civil War Talk Radio."
