Teaching the Civil War in4

I really love the Civil War Trust’s in4 video series. They offer concise overviews of a wide range of topics and they are perfect for the classroom. Back in 2014 I filmed a segment on the subject of Civil War memory.

This past August I spent a couple of hours with Douglas Ullman, Jr. on The Boston Common to film two segments, one on the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry and the other on the Lost Cause.

I am certainly not a natural when it comes to working extemporaneously as opposed to with a prepared text, so I appreciate Doug’s ability to edit me down to something that approaches coherence. Hope you find these two new videos to be helpful.
