 Ed Ayers speaks at December 12 Meeting of Round Table:  From War to Recontruction

University of Richmond historian Ed Ayers  addressed December meeting of the Round Table on the complex subject of the war and post-war reconstruction.   Big subject, handled exceptionally well, and too big to be summarized here with any degree of accuracy.  Buy the books!

Ayers began his presentation with a discussion of the Valley of the Shadow Project, which contains the primary sources for much of his writing.  Research note cards made public, as he describes the project.   From the website:

See the Civil War from the perspective of two American communities-- one Northern and one Southern-- through the letters, diaries, newspapers, census, and church records left by men and women in Augusta County, Virginia, and Franklin County, Pennsylvania.

At its October 10 meeting the Round Table presented the Richard Barksdale Harwell Award to Earl Hess.  Dr. Hess is the author of Braxton Bragg: The Most Hated Man of the Confederacy. 

The award is presented annually to the author of the best book on a Civil War subject published in the preceding year. 

Dr. Hess spoke on the subject of this excellent book at the well-attended monthly meeting.  Was Bragg deserving of his poor reputation?  Or was history unfair to this Confederate general?  Buy the book and learn the whole story from this outstanding scholar.
