Prof. Allen Guelzo was featured by WAMU radio (American University's radio station) in advance of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg.
Gettysburg was a definitive battle in the Civil War, a flash point in American history that still shapes the country's identity. This summer marks the 150th anniversary of that battle, which began on July 1, 1863. Kojo explores how its history continues to shape who we are and the pieces of it that remain the most relevant in modern American society.
