The Bravest of the Brave

George  Kundahl October 5, 2012

George Kundahl, author of "The Bravest of the Brave: The Correspondence of Stephen Dodson Ramseur"

Gerry's Monologue -
"This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,... 1861, Stephen Dodson Ramseur was 24 years old. A hot secessionists, a West Point trained military officer, a slaveholder and a fervent Christian. In other words, the quintessential young Southern gentleman. Over the next three years he would service the State of North Carolina, and the Confederacy, as the commander of an artillery battery, an infantry regiment, a brigade and eventually a division, as a young Major General. He would fall in love with, and marry his cousin. And he would write a fascinating series of letters to family and friends before he suffered a mortal wound at Cedar Creek in 1864. We can't meet Stephen Ramseur on this earth, but we can do the next best thing and meet George G. Kundahl, editor of "The Bravest of the Brave: The Correspondence of Stephen Dodson Ramseur," today on Civil War Talk Radio."
