Who won the Civil War?

April 27, 2005

As a Civil War historian at Penn State, Bill Blair has led his share of battlefield excursions. But another of his missions is to decipher the broader lessons of the war, its causes and its legacies. His new book, "Cities of the Dead," examines the turbulent history of Civil War commemorations in the south, the role these civic rituals played in Reconstruction politics and race relations, and their lasting impact on the way the war is remembered. The full story can be found at the Research Penn State Web site at http://www.rps.psu.edu/inconversation/civilwar.html
