Race and Radicalism in the Union Army

Mark A.  Lause September 3, 2010

Mark A. Lause, author of 'Race and Radicalism in the Union Army' joins Gerry for the Season 7 Premiere. Among the topics discussed are American Indians fighting for the Union.

Gerry's Monologue -
"This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...

...most versions of the Civil War portray American Indians as spectators or, if involved, fighting on the side of the Confederacy, like the forces of Stan Wattee and others at Pea Ridge. But in fact many Indians fought and died for the Union. Among them those that served at a small but significant battle, Honey Springs, in Arkansas, 1863. We'll talk today about 'At Battle, Unjustly Obscured' and what it might have represented in a larger meaning of the war with our guest Mark Lause, author of 'Race and Radicalism in the Union Army,' today on Civil War Talk Radio."
