Matt and I talk about all sorts of Gettysburg stuff…

  • Why the battle looms so large in the American historical consciousness

  • What we can learn from a guided tour

  • Why there is so much Confederateness there

  • Battlefield interpretation

  • The old Visitor Center and Cyclorama building

  • What do we do with the all the Rebel monuments (a favorite topic of mine).

We also hit on some good books: Coddington’s Gettysburg Campaign and the works of John Bachelder
