Justice Holmes and the Civil War

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. spent the Civil War as a member of the famed 20th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, the “Harvard Regiment.”  C-SPAN aired this panel discussion of the impact of the war on his life.



  1. Holmes is one of my favorites–him and Brandeis. I read sections of his _Abrams_ dissent in my 20th century class.
