WHAT YOU WILL LEARN: You’ll hear familiar
explanations for outcomes of famous Civil War battles like Shiloh,
Antietam, and Gettysburg—and you’ll learn why these explanations
fail to hold up in the face of more recent evidence and analysis.
Using as examples some of the places we visit on the “This Hallowed
Ground” Civil War Tour, you’ll see how the outcome of Civil War
battles had much less to do with the technology of the era or the
generals who made the plans, and much more to do with the young men
in blue and gray who did the fighting and dying.
