Here’s Todd Brewster, speaking about his new book, Lincoln’s Gamble: How the Emancipation Proclamation Changed the Course of the Civil War. He gave this presentation at the National Archives. I disagree with him about George B. McClellan. McClellan wasn’t disloyal. To tell you the truth, I think it detracts from the presentation and expectations about the book. I’m not so sure that this book is really needed since Allen C. Guelzo’s book is still the standard.
