Emory Thomas, the distinguished prize-winning historian and biographer of Robert E. Lee joins us to discuss his new book, ”The Dogs of War: 1861.” In this thoughtful and revealing book, Thomas -- professor emeritus of history at the University of Georgia -- highlights the delusions that dominated the thinking of Southerners and Northerners on the eve of the Civil War’s outbreak. He weaves his explorations of these misconceptions into a tense narrative of the months leading up to the firing on Fort Sumter in April 1861. His appearance is part of our commemoration of the Civil War Sesquicentennial. His books include ”The Confederate Nation” as well as acclaimed biographies of Lee and Stonewall Jackson. We will have copies of his new book for sale and signing at this event. (jasbro)
