    Story
    (121)

    Between 1861 and 1865, the clash of the greatest armies the Western hemisphere had ever seen turned small towns, little-known streams, and obscure meadows in the American countryside into names we will always remember. In those great battles, those streams ran red with blood-and the United States was truly born.

    Story
    What did you love best about The American Civil War?

    I was a history major in college but devoted most of my studies to 20th Century history. I always wanted to learn more about the Civil War and this course was perfect. A fantastic presentation and great selection of topics covering a wide variety of social, military, and political issues. Dr. Gallagher is an engaging lecturer and does an excellent job of cutting through many of the post-war myths and misconceptions and focusing on contemporary accounts.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The variety of topics and depth of treatment.


    What does Professor Gary W. Gallagher bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Engaging lecturer with a clear enthusiasm for the subject matter.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The continued references to and quotation from contemporary, primary source material added great "human interest" to an already fascinating topic.


    Any additional comments?

    Outstanding in every respect.
