Joseph  Glatthaar October 21, 2011

Joseph Glatthaar, author of "General Lee's Army: From Victory to Collapse."

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

...the Army of the Potomac had Bruce Catton to record it's ups, and more frequent downs, in a classic trilogy. The Confederate Army of Tennessee had two magnificent books by Thomas Connelly. The Union Army of the Tennessee has Stephen Woodworth. The Army of the Cumberland has Larry Daniels. Even the Army of the Ohio has some guy who wrote a book about it. Yet the most famous Civil War army of them all, Robert E. Lee's legendary Army of Northern Virginia did not find its chronicler until 2008, when Prof. Joseph T. Glatthaar wrote "General Lee's Army: From Victory to Collapse." He followed it up earlier this year with an even more in-depth look at "Soldiering in the Army of Northern Virginia: A Statistical Portrait of the Troops Who Served under Robert E Lee." We will learn some surprising things about those troops, when we talk today with Joe Glatthaar, on Civil War Talk Radio."
