9-6-11: 1861

September 6, 2011 at 8:15 am Leave a comment


This conversation originally aired on May 17, 2011.

It was a century and a half ago that Maryland and the rest of the country started to come to grips with civil war.  Reading Adam Goodheart’s book about that moment, it feels like just yesterday. Or maybe, today.

Adam Goodheart is a journalist and travel writer as well as historian. He directs the C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience at Washington College in Chestertown. His new book is 1861: The Civil War Awakening.   His thesis is that 1861, like 1776, was not just a year – it was an idea. He discusses this idea with Sheilah. You can read more from Adam Goodheart at the Chestertown Spy and on the New York Time’s Disunion blog
