Remembering the Civil War

The American Civil War is a part of my heritage.  I have ancestors that fought on both sides of the conflict.  My father’s side fought for the Union.  One great-great-grandfather died in the Battle of Collierville and another served under Grant in the Vicksburg Campaign.  My mother’s great grandfather was wounded and his twin brother killed fighting for the Confederates.

So this 4th of July, when we celebrated the 15oth anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg I was eager to hear what Dr. Allen Guelzo, professor of the Civil War Era at Gettysburg College, had to say about this iconic battle in a special radio broadcast.   Dr. Guelzo has recently published the book, Gettysburg:  The Last Invasion.  Like the recent movie, Lincoln, Guelzo emphasizes the role politics played in the Civil War.  General Meade, the Union commander, was not really a fan of Lincoln or his policies.  Meade’s family, like mine, was also divided by the war.  His two sisters having married Southerners, he had nephews fighting in the opposing army.  This made Meade lukewarm at best in his committment to preserve the Union.  Guelzo contends that Meade squandered the victory won at Gettysburg by not vigorously pursuing Lee’s retreating army.

You can find Gettysburg:  The Last Invasion as well as other books and films about the Civil War on display on the first floor of the library.
