Gary Gallagher on Confederate Loyalty

Gary Gallagher’s forthcoming book explores Confederate loyalty through the lives of Robert E. Lee, Steven D. Ramseur, Jubal Early. Gallagher has analyzed the lives of all three, including an early biography of Ramseur, but this might be his most extensive treatment of Early to date.  Many of us anticipated a full-length biography of Lee’s “Bad Old Man”, but that is not going to happen.

Last week the Lovett School in Atlanta hosted Gallagher as part of its speaker series, which you can watch below.  I am very much looking forward to this book.
