Barbara Gannon, author of "The Won Cause: Black and White Comradeship in the Grand Army of the Republic."
Gerry's Monologue - "This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...
...we all know about the Lost Cause. The romanticized notion the brave confederates were fighting for states rights, or lower tariff, or agrarian values, something, anything other than slavery. In the 20th century, the Lost Cause seemed to win the battle for historical memory of the Civil War. But in the 19th century, there was one organization whose members fought the Lost Cause after the war just as they had fought the Confederates during the war. They were the Union veterans of the G.A.R. and we will learn about their story today from Professor Barbara Gannon, the author of "The Won Cause: Black and White Comradeship in the Grand Army of the Republic." That is today on Civil War Talk Radio."
