Their Last Full Measure: The Final Days of the Civil War

This is Joseph Wheelan monotonously reading a presentation about his book, Their Last Full Measure: The Final Days of the Civil War.  This was at the National Archives.  I give him a “D” grade for the presentation.  I also have problems with his content regarding William T. Sherman.  And please, when are we going to be rid of the inane claim that the Civil War changed the way we refer to collective nouns?  Finally, there’s no real historical analysis in the presentation.  I’m not likely to purchase this book, but see what you think.

    Thanks for you comments, Al. I don’t bother to even look at the ones you rate poorly. It saves me a lot of time.
