Here’s a panel discussion from 2000 with Gary Gallagher, Joseph Harsh, Alan Nolan, and Bevin Alexander on the generalship of Robert E. Lee.
I have to say I completely disagree with Bevin Alexander and Alan Nolan. I really don’t think they understand Lee. I also completely disagree with Alexander’s understanding of the Civil War, and I don’t think Nolan really understands military strategy and tactics. I think Professors Gallagher and Harsh have it right.
