The Civil War, One Day at a Time

On the 155th anniversary of The Gettysburg Address, we bring you a conversation with Professor Adam Goodheart.

Goodheart's used Civil War Era journalism as one of his primary sources and says that sharing updates about the war gives his readers a sense of immediacy that a traditional history book can't provide. He spoke to Brooke in 2010, also on November 19th, the anniversary of The Gettysburg Address.
