Here’s a discussion with Mark Tooley, Joseph Wheelan, and Professor James I. Robertson, Jr. This was part of the 2016 Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville, VA.
The video’s description reads, “James Robertson, author of After the Civil War: The Heroes, Villains, Soldiers, and Civilians Who Changed America; Mark Tooley, author of The Peace That Almost Was: The Forgotten Story of the 1861 Washington Peace Conference and the Final Attempt to Avert the Civil War; and Joseph Wheelan, author of Their Last Full Measure: The Final Days of the Civil War, talked about the Civil War. They spoke at the 22nd annual Virginia Festival of the Book, held on March 16-20, 2016, in Charlottesville, Virginia.”
I was not impressed with Mr. Wheelan’s presentation. I found the history to be superficial and the presentation to be uninspiring. I enjoyed Professor Robertson’s presentation immensely, though as we can see he sometimes lets his emotional attachment to R. E. Lee hold sway.
