Update: The interview went well and should air this weekend. Thanks to those of you who left comments or emailed me. I am disappointed that Newt didn’t call in. Oh well.
This morning I will be a guest on Studio 360 with Kurt Anderson to discuss my review of Newt Gingrich’s Civil War novel, The Battle of the Crater. The interview is at 10am, but if I heard correctly it will not air live – perhaps over the weekend. Of course, I will share the podcast once it appears on their website. It should be fun.
For those of you up early perhaps you can help me with a short list of politicians who have dabbled in history. I am interested primarily, but not exclusively in the Civil War era. Woodrow Wilson comes to mind in the context of the Civil War and, of course, there is Kennedy’s Profiles in Courage. More recent examples are very much appreciated. Thanks for your help.
