A Conversation Between David Blight and Greg Downs

I watched this live a few months ago and was hoping CUNY would eventually upload it for public viewing. It really is a wonderful conversation that considers our collective memory of Appomattox and, especially, Downs’s new book, After Appomattox: Military Occupation and the Ends of War, which is a must read.

    Yes, thank you. Oy. Another book to buy, read, digest, attempt to understand…

    After Appomattox is a wonderful book. It will inform the research agenda for years. Thanks for posting the video. I too had been looking for it after the live stream.

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
