Confederate Surrender

Here’s Gary Gallagher at the Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College’s 2015 Summer Conference speaking on Lee’s surrender and the end of the Civil War.

From the video’s description: “Gary Gallagher talked about General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox, the conclusion of the war, and the Confederate army’s perspective on the reasons for their defeat.

“ ‘Robert E. Lee, the Army of Northern Virginia, and the Reality of Confederate Defeat’ was part of the 35th annual summer conference of the Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College, ‘The Civil War in 1865, looking at the end of the Civil War, its aftermath, and the Reconstruction era.’ ”

This is the presentation in which I asked Professor Gallagher a question that I don’t believe he thought through completely, as I posted on here.
